You are very close! Two items to fix:

  • The challenge asks for variable good_numbers, not a function.
  • Your current regex says "any digit \d followed by not 5,6,7. This might let slip through a 5, 6, or 7 if in the odd-indexed position. Remove the \d.

Post back if you need more help! Good luck!!
