Cash Register : Need Help

Tell us what’s happening:
I’m stuck for a week. I was able to pass the challenges except for the third one and I don’t know why? Could anyone please help me and point me in the right direction?

Your code so far


function checkCashRegister(price, cash, cid) {
	var denom = [['PENNY', 0.01], ['NICKEL', 0.05], ['DIME', 0.1], ['QUARTER', 0.25], ['ONE', 1], ['FIVE', 5], ['TEN', 10], ['TWENTY', 20], ['ONE HUNDRED', 100]];
	var output = {"status": '', "change": []};
	var change = cash - price;
  // Here is your change, ma'am.

//Value of Cash-in-drawer
 var cidTotal = cid.reduce( function (acc, curr) {
    return acc + curr[1];
  }, 0);
  cidTotal = Math.round(cidTotal * 100) / 100;

//results
if(cidTotal < change) {
	 output.status +=  'INSUFFICIENT_FUNDS';
	return output;
   }
if(cidTotal === change) {
	output.status += 'CLOSED';
	output.change = cid;
	return output;
        }
	
//breakup of change
var changeArr = [];


for (var i = cid.length - 1; i > 0; i--) {
	var value = 0;
	while(change >= denom[i][1] && value < cid[i][1]) {
		change -= denom[i][1];
		value += denom[i][1];
		change = Math.round(change * 100)/100;
	}
	if(value > 0){
		changeArr.push([denom[i][0], value]);
	}
	value = 0;
}
	if(change > 0){
	output.status +=  'INSUFFICIENT_FUNDS';
	return output;
	}
output.status += 'OPEN';
output.change = changeArr;
return output;
}


checkCashRegister(3.26, 100, [["PENNY", 1.01], ["NICKEL", 2.05], ["DIME", 3.1], ["QUARTER", 4.25], ["ONE", 90], ["FIVE", 55], ["TEN", 20], ["TWENTY", 60], ["ONE HUNDRED", 100]]);

The problem is that you don’t give out pennies.

for (var i = cid.length - 1; i > 0; i--) {

You end the for loop when i is 1, but pennies are cid[0].

Thank you so much. I’ve overlooked this one.

I’m glad I could help. Happy coding!
