Make a Person: Passing 11/12

Tell us what’s happening:
Could someone tell me why the following code is not passing this requirement:

Requirement: bob.getFullName() should return “Haskell Curry” after bob.setLastName("Curry")

I’m passing every other requirement of this challenge.

Your code so far

var Person = function(firstAndLast) {
// Only change code below this line
// Complete the method below and implement the others similarly
var fullName = firstAndLast

this.getFullName = function() {
  return fullName;
this.getFirstName = function(){
  return fullName.split(" ")[0];
this.getLastName = function(){
  return fullName.split(" ")[1];

this.setFirstName = function(newName){
  return fullName = newName + " " + this.getLastName();
this.setLastName = function(newName){
  return fullname = this.getFirstName() + " " + newName;
this.setFullName = function(newName){
  return fullName = newName;


var bob = new Person('Bob Ross');

Challenge: Make a Person

Link to the challenge:

You have a typo. Hint: It is in the setter.


Everything looks good in the code except for your this.setLastName function.

It’s a very minor error, but you’ll want to double-check the variable you’re returning and compare it with the other returns that you have in other functions.


Thank you both. I should have spotted that… :sweat_smile:

if you write

let result = bob.getFullName();

what do you see in the console?
