Hmmm.... reading other answers I might have misinterpreted what was required in this challenge. What is it exactly? For example, if num1 = 121 and num2 = 141, would they be triple troubled numbers? (because 7*3 = 21, and 7*2 =14) Or would it be num1 = 8777and num2 = 877 be triple troubled numbers? (because 7 repeats 3 times in the first one and 2 in the second one)

I'm getting caught up a few days behind, but I understood this is three digits in a row. Which I think is confirmed by the linked challenge examples.

So

`num1 = 8777 and num2 = 877`

would return true for this!Starting on my version now

To achieve that, the only change would be in the

`if`

statement. Instead of doing`x*3`

and`x*2`

, it would be`''+x+x+x`

and`''+x+x`

respectively:
