Javascript Foundation / Strings: Challenge 1 of 3

Can't seem to get this to work for some reason. Seems to be the easiest thing??? Maybe a bug? Anyone else having trouble?

var escapedNewLine = "First line goes here\nSecond Line goes here"; console.log(escapedNewLine); var escapedBackslash = ""; var escapedTab = "";

The challenge is purely asking you just for the characters so for example

var escapedNewLine = "\n"; 
var escapedBackslash = "\\";
var escapedTab = "   ";
