PHP Enhancing a Simple PHP Application Cleaning URLs with Rewrite Rules Adding A Trailing Slash

.htaccess RewriteRule not working as expected

I must not be understanding the question. It appears to be asking for a RewriteRule redirecting someone from localhost/flavors (no trailing slash) to localhost/flavors/ (with trailing slash). Here's what I've tried, but apparently none are correct:

RewriteRule ^flavors$ /flavors/ or RewriteRule (^flavors$) /$1/ or RewriteRule ^flavor$ /all_flavors.php (copying the redirect from the previous line)

What am I missing that is being asked?

RewriteEngine  On   
RewriteRule ^flavors/$ /all_flavors.php
RewriteRule ^flavors$ /flavors/

I figured it out. I wasn't adding a redirect flag to the line. The actual code should have been:

RewriteRule ^flavors$ /flavors/ [R=301]
