    }
    var result = str1
    let first_char = result.remove(at: result.startIndex)
    let findLast = result.index(before: result.endIndex)
    let last_char = result.remove(at: findLast)
    
    result.append(first_char)
    result.insert(last_char, at: (result.startIndex))
    
    return result
