Positive Lookahead Regex Javascript

Hello guys. I really don’t understand the logic behind this part. (?=\D*\d)

Your code so far


let sampleWord = "astronaut";
let pwRegex = /(?=\w{5,})(?=\D*\d)/; // Change this line
let result = pwRegex.test(sampleWord);

Challenge: Positive and Negative Lookahead

Link to the challenge:

It’s a positive lookahead ((?=...)) that looks for zero or more non-digits (\D*) followed by a digit (\d).

So your pwRegex is looking for 5 or more word characters with at least one digit.
