Basic Algorithm Scripting - Mutations

Tell us what’s happening:
my count stops increasing after first iteration

Your code so far

function mutation(arr) {
  const splittedFirstElement = arr[0].split("");
  const splittedSecondElement = arr[1].split("");
    let count = 0;
  for(let i = 0; i < splittedSecondElement.length; i++){
    var a = 0;
    do{
      if(splittedSecondElement[i] == splittedFirstElement[a]){
        count++
      }
      a++
    } while(splittedSecondElement[i] != splittedFirstElement[a] && a < splittedFirstElement.length)
        a = 0;
  }
  console.log(count)
  if(count >= splittedSecondElement.length){
    return true;
  }
  else{
    return false;
  }
}

console.log(mutation(["voodoo", "no"]));

Please Tell us what’s happening in your own words.

Learning to describe problems is hard, but it is an important part of learning how to code.

Also, the more you say, the more we can help!
