JavaScript JavaScript Foundations Strings Escape Characters

Any help. Would you tell me what's wrong with this answer?

var escapedNewLine = "this is line1\nThis is line2\nThis is line3";
var escapedBackslash = "C:\\folder\\script.txt";
var escapedTab = "this is line1\nThis is line2\nThis is\t line3";

Hi ed quijano

You've provided really good examples of those escape characters in action. The question is asking for something a lot simpler: just provide the escape characters -- with nothing else. So the first line should just be:

var escapedNewLine = "\n";

oh men! Thanks Dave

You bet! You're just too smart for that quiz :)
