Sass strings challenge ????

This isn't getting accepted on the str-insert challenge:

$words: 'this is the first string';

.block {
  content: str-insert($words, 'not', 3);

I've played around with putting it into a variable, messing spaces and index plenty, I'm stumped. http://sass-lang.com/documentation/Sass/Script/Functions.html#str_insert-instance_method

Hi Damion,

You're almost there, you just need to add a space in front of the word not and set the index to 8 which is the 2nd space in the sentence.

.block {
    content: str-insert($words, ' not', 8);

By character index- DURRRR

:) Thanks Chris
