Intermediate Algorithm Scripting - Search and Replace

Tell us what’s happening:
I am stuck. I tried all solutions from Hints. However, nothing works.

Your code so far

function translatePigLatin(str) {
return str
.replace(/[1]\w*/, “$&way”)
.replace(/([2]+)(\w*)/, “$2$1ay”);
}

// test here
translatePigLatin(“consonant”);

function translatePigLatin(str) {
  return str
    .replace(/^[aeiou]\w*/, "$&way")
    .replace(/(^[^aeiou]+)(\w*)/, "$2$1ay");
}

// test here
translatePigLatin("consonant");
