Im confuse because (arr,item) why we use this to arrgumeent and then the name is var arraylist why

there is nothing with name of arraylist

if you don’t understand what the function is, can I suggest reviewing previous lessons?


So you want to know what those two values mean (arr,item).
You basically have an array of converted strings, with a number called item in this case let said 6 or can be other number.
So now you have an (array[1,2,3,4,5] , item(6) )
you want to pass this two values into a function called nextInLine() will receive two values. This values are (array[1,2,3,4,5] , item(6) ), into this function(arr, item) respectively. (have same two values.)

// NextInLine function
function nextInLine(arr, item){ // its the same as passing values (array[1,2,3,4,5] , item(6) ).
