Challenge: Regular Expressions - Remove Whitespace from Start and End

Link to the challenge:

Your regular expression should be generic so that it could potentially work with any string, not just the string in the hello variable. Remember, you are trying to match the white space at the very beginning and very end of the string, not the actual text in the string.

Also, when setting the result variable, it’s not enough to just do a match on the expression, you want to remove the white space from the beginning and end of the string. In other words, you can think of it as wanting to replace that white space with nothing.
