Basic Algorithm Scripting - Repeat a String Repeat a String

Tell us what’s happening:
I have a question, why my code isn’t correct? It looks like it’s working exactly like it would. Can anyone tell me what I do wrong here?

Your code so far

function repeatStringNumTimes(str, num) {
    let string=[];
    if (num<=0) {return ''}
    else {
      for (let i=0; i<num; i++){
        string.push(str);
        }
      return console.log(string.join(''));
    }
 }

repeatStringNumTimes("*", 5);

Hey, it’s probably because you are not returning a string but a console.log().
Removing the console log from the return statement would correct it.
