You're missed the last step of the assignment: Write your function

Is this for a class assignment? I would be happy to "help" but first show what you've attempted by posting your code.

There are way too many request for solutions to homework problems. This is not the purpose of this forum. If you have s specific issue, you are stuck on some part, or are confused, please elaborate. There are many here would be more than happy to help.

If you simply want a solution, post back and we can see about finding a contractor you can pay to do your work for you. Good Luck!!!

Here is a pseudo-code answer that should help you (in javascript).

var str = '0h2abe1zy';

function plainText(str) {
    var result = '';
    for(var i = 0; i < str.length; i++) {
        var s = str[i];
        if(s is a number) {
            increment i
        } else {
            add letter to result-variable
    return our result variable
