Quite sure this challenge is broken.

This seems like quite a simple challenge and on PyCharm it's working perfectly for me. Am I missing something??? I can't imagine what.

Another peculiar thing I've noticed is that the program doesn't register my response unless I have the previous challenge's function name: 'first_4' (instead of 'first_and_last_4').

def first_and_last_4(number):
    return number[:4] + number[-4:]

Complete your challenge by posting the full solution of the first two challenges.

The solution you posted is from challenge 2.

def first_4(number):
     return number[:4]

def first_and_last_4(number):
    return number[:4] + number[-4:]

Oh... lol. Thanks man. I swear the format for the other ones weren't like that. But yea, it worked :)
