what is the answer to this? I tried everything but can't seem to get it right...

it is just asking for spaces and according to the video it is just backslashes. I can't seem to get this thing to pass

Hey Issac.

A space is 'backslash + s' \s Jason discusses it here at ~2:57. A backslash by itself has no significance or meaning without further characters. For example, Tab (\t) , new line (\n) etc.

Keep Coding! :)
