This an encrypted text. You need to decrypt it and encrypt it again to get the right answer.

It seems to say

LEET ME A RIGHT ANGLE

This looks like a

Baconian cipher

So let us

Break it up into groups of 5.
ABABA AABAA AABAA BAABA ABABB AABAA AAAAA BAAAA ABAAA AABBA AABBB BAABA AAAAA ABBAA AABBA ABABA AABAA
which when translated, using the table provided in the link, becomes
LEETMEARIGHTANGLE
and adding spaces
LEET ME A RIGHT ANGLE

Perhaps there is a typo?

Could be LEFT ME A RIGHT ANGLE

Strange... an incomplete answer was accepted. Here's the completion:

As @hexomino found the decrypted message is:

LEET ME A RIGHT ANGLE

The message was to be re-encrypted into:

LEET

So the correct answer is:

4 r16H7 4N613
