--Specify Only the Lower Number of Matches--

Hi guys,

I have been stuck on this test for a few minutes (I’m sure it’s something simple I’m missing!) and it’s driving me crazy…what am I missing?!

Thanks in advance :slight_smile:


Your code so far

let haStr = "Hazzzzah";
let haRegex = /Haz{4,}h/; // Change this line
let result = haRegex.test(haStr);

Link to the challenge:

You need to check your spelling of hazzah, specifically the a after the z’s.

Hope this helps :slight_smile:

You know when you are just having one of those days?

Thanks so much for your quick reply…very much appreciated! :slight_smile:

I am currently working on this challenge but cannot pass all tests…

Well in my mind “Hazzah” and “Hazah” are spelled differently, yet


and not /Haz{4,}zah/;

If you write /Haz{4,}zah/ it means at least 5 ‘z’ (the 4 from the z{4,} and then the one after that), it is different from /Haz{4,}ah/ where it is at least 4 ‘z’, one less because you don’t have the ‘z’ after the parenthesis

Though i have the doubt if /Haz{4,}zah/; will work because z{4,} match 4 or more ‘z’, and the following one could already be matched so there would be an ‘a’ after the 4 or more ‘z’ but the expression wants a ‘z’ after the 4+ z, so I am not sure this would match… regex is strange to me still


How can I not see that simple thing? :thinking:
