Tell us what’s happening:
Reloaded browser and took out the long comment i had inside to download later, and both solutions worked!! I fixed it myself.
I’ve made a few of my own solutions that work, including the commented out version of wsRegex .
I also tried the exact answer listed as the solution after at least an hour of trying this question, only to find out the listed solution does not work for me, either!
/* LISTED SOLUTION
let hello = " Hello, World! "; let wsRegex = /^\s+|\s+$/g; // Change this line let result = hello.replace(wsRegex, ""); // Change this line `*/ **Your code so far** ```js /* Regular Expressions: Remove Whitespace from Start and End Sometimes whitespace characters around strings are not wanted but are there. Typical processing of strings is to remove the whitespace at the start and end of it. Write a regex and use the appropriate string methods to remove whitespace at the beginning and end of strings. Note: The String.prototype.trim() method would work here, but you'll need to complete this challenge using regular expressions. */ let hello = " Hello, World! "; let wsRegex = /^\s+|\s+$/g;// alt code below. // let wsRegex = /(^\s+)(\w+\W)\s(\w+\W)(\s+$)/g; // this works and doesn't use .trim() but does NOT pass the test -_-; (when output text is "$2 $3") let textStrip = "" let result = hello.replace(wsRegex, textStrip); hello.replace(wsRegex, textStrip) // Change this line console.log(result);
