Describe your issue in detail here.
I haven’t been working with regex for long. Even though I know that the
^...$ are used to show beginning and an end, I was wondering why we need to put them here in this context and how would the code execute without them?
Your code so far
let repeatNum = "42 42 42"; let reRegex = /^(\d+)(\s)\1\2\1$/; // Change this line let result = reRegex.test(repeatNum);
