hint [2/9]

Explanation:

This problem is very straight forward, you will get string that will represent a sentence in binary code, and you need to translate that into words. There is not direct way to do this so you will have to translate twice.

You should first convert from binary to decimal and from decimal before translating those values into characters

hint [3/9]

Hint: 2

Things are easier when focusing on smaller parts, divide the input to focus on one letter at the time.

hint [4/9]

Hint: 3

Make sure that each time you transcode a character from binary to decimal, that you reset whatever variable you used to keep track of the ones. Also do not forget to turn everything back into one string.
