I got a different solution as well. I used text to columns instead of proposed solution of regex...but it should have the same result. Confused.

Would have been faster if Data Cleansing had a "Remove Null Rows" option. Good practice using the summarize tool, Thanks!

I got slightly different totals, but I think the difference is due to the way I stripped out punctuation in words with contractions.  I think I'd rather do the cleaning with an R package like tidytext or quanteda. than write a regEx expression for that!

Challenge #40: Didn't get the exact same answer. I removed all the special characters and numbers. I also converted all the words to lowercase.

I got a slightly different answer than the given one but I also standardized casing to make sure to capture "The" and "the" et al together.
