Basic Algorithm Scripting - Repeat a String Repeat a String

Hey! So im working on this problem but not sure what’s wrong. The console.log statement is actually giving what I am expecting. I know it is an array but I am converting to a string with .join() method. Can some one point me to the right direction or explain why it is Im failing?

Your code so far

function repeatStringNumTimes(str, num) {
  let answer = []
for(let i = 0; i < num; i++){
answer.push(str)

}
let result = answer.join("")
console.log(result)
  return str;
}

repeatStringNumTimes("abc", 3);

What are you returning?

OMG I cant believe it I think im just burnt LOL

No worries, it happens! For the problems that ask you to return a value, you could debug like this:

function repeatStringNumTimes(str, num) {
  // your solution
}

// send the return value of your function call to console.log
console.log(repeatStringNumTimes("abc", 3));
