I need help. I don’t know what I am doing wrong. This is the message from fcc:
Your second capture group should match either the + or - operator.

This is your second capture group. You should check how to use OR in regex. Here is what it says in regex101:
https://regex101.com/

Match a single character present in the list below [+\-]
+ matches the character + with index 4310 (2B16 or 538) literally (case sensitive)
\- matches the character - with index 4510 (2D16 or 558) literally (case sensitive)

Well, ok it actually works, but it’s not an OR. In programming an OR is usually a pipe |

Thank you for your reply. Turns out i didn’t need anything between the + and -
