Intermediate Algorithm Scripting - Make a Person

Tell us what’s happening:
Describe your issue in detail here.
My outputs match the outputs required by the tests, yet some of the tests are failing.

Your code so far

const Person = function(firstAndLast) {
  // Only change code below this line
  // Complete the method below and implement the others similarly
  let fullName = firstAndLast;
  this.getFullName = function() {
    return fullName;
  };

  this.getFirstName = function() {
    return fullName.split(" ")[0];
  };

  this.getLastName = function() {
    return fullName.split(" ")[1];
  };

  this.setFirstName = function(first) {
    fullName = first+" "+fullName.split(" ")[1];
  };

  this.setLastName = function(last) {
    fullName = fullName.split(" ")[0]+" "+last;
  };

  this.setFullName = function(full) {
    fullName = full;
  };

  return firstAndLast;
};

const bob = new Person('Bob Ross');
//console.log(bob);
console.log(bob.getFirstName());
console.log(bob.getLastName());
console.log(bob.getFullName());
bob.setFirstName("Haskell");
console.log(bob.getFullName());
bob.setLastName("Curry");
console.log(bob.getFullName());
bob.setFullName("Haskell Curry");
console.log(bob.getFullName());
console.log(bob.getFirstName());
console.log(bob.getLastName());
console.log(bob.fullName);

results of above logs to console:

Bob
Ross
Bob Ross
Haskell Ross
Haskell Curry
Haskell Curry
Haskell

Challenge: Intermediate Algorithm Scripting - Make a Person

Link to the challenge:

when I copy and paste your functions only (without the extra logs and calls to the set function), the test passes.
try that.

That worked! Thank you !

In case you wanted to know why that worked,
your original code ended after setting the first and last name to “Haskell curry” so the first test it ran
bob.getFirstName() returned “Haskell”.
instead of deleting it you could have also added a line:
bob.setFullName(“Bob Ross”) and it would also pass.
