Phone number algorithim!

Phone number algorithim!


ok campers, ive done my best to do this on my own
ive done some reading and ive managed to figure out most of the challenge but I cant seem to figure the last few out.
its in a spoiler tag what I got so far.

// /\b\d{10}\b    5555555555
// /\d{3}-\d{3}-\d{4}/ 555-555-5555
// /\d{3} \d{3} \d{4}/ 555 555 5555
// /\(\d{3}\) \d{3} \d{4}/ (555) 555 5555
// /\(\d{3}\)\d{3} \d{4}/ (555)555 5555
// /\(\d{3}\)\d{3}-\d{4}/ (555)555-5555

//seperate regExp by |
function telephoneCheck(str) {
 var format=/\b\d{10}\b|\b\d{3}-\d{3}-\d{4}|\d{3} \d{3} \d{4}\b|\b\(\d{3}\) \d{3} \d{4}\b|\b\(\d{3}\)\d{3} \d{4}\b|\b\(\d{3}\)\d{3}-\d{4}\b/;
  return format.test(str);


is there a way to count the spaces in between parentheses?
and why does “(65055?52368)” return true? that is not in any of the formats I added!?!?!
rant over…I feel as if its something I’m going to facepalm for missing.

whoever invented regular expressions was a genius, a sadistic genius, but a genius


I think you meant to ask, why does telephoneCheck("(6505552368)") return true?

Answer: Because of \b\d{10}\b
