Basic JS: Manipulate Arrays With shift()

Tell us what’s happening:
I can’t seem to get this right and I don’t understand what I’m doing wrong.

It just says removedFromMyArray should contain ["John", 23] . But console.log(removedFromMyArray’ prints [‘John’, 23]

Can anyone help?

Your code so far

// Setup
const myArray = [["John", 23], ["dog", 3]];

// Only change code below this line
const removedFromOurArray = myArray.shift();

I’ve edited your post for readability. When you enter a code block into a forum post, please precede it with a separate line of three backticks and follow it with a separate line of three backticks to make it easier to read.

You can also use the “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) to add backticks around text.

See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard.
Note: Backticks (`) are not single quotes (’).

Hi @aschmim !

Welcome to the forum!

Read through the error message more carefully here

then read through what you wrote instead

Once you fix that, then it will pass.

Thanks again!
