Tell us what’s happening:
My code’s output is correct but the challenge is not letting me pass. Does anyone have any ideas why I can not pass the challenge? I see there is an alternate way using regEx but why use that way when there is a more practical and efficient way. Do I have to use the regEx way?

Your code so far


let huhText = "This sandwich is good.";
let fixRegex = /good/; // Change this line
let replaceText = "okey-dokey";
let replaceText = huhText.replace(fixRegex, replaceText); // Change this line
let result = huhText.replace(fixRegex, replaceText);

Hahaha. Thanks man! It’s been a long week. I should have seen the repeat line of code earlier.
