    Documentation says “coerce it using input + ”” I am a beginner and Google search did not help explain this.

      Hi Lissa – its a little trick to make sure the value you test is a string (required by the library). Hopefully the code snippet helps explain:

      const input = 8; // input is a number
      input + ''; // value of input is now a string '8'

      There is a blog post here that describes 5 ways in Javascript to convert a value to a string

      If you know your input value is always going to be a string no need to do any additional coding
