HELP----Iterate Through All an Arrays Items Using For Loops

#1

Tell us what’s happening:
so the question is–We have defined a function, filteredArray, which takes arr, a nested array, and elem as arguments, and returns a new array. elem represents an element that may or may not be present on one or more of the arrays nested within arr. Modify the function, using a for loop, to return a filtered version of the passed array such that any array nested within arr containing elem has been removed.

What I am doing is a for lope which enters the array through i and to move inside that array I am using j, if in ith array jth element gets equal to element then delete that array and break the j loop so that value of i can be changed, but it is showing errors, WHere am I wrong, please Help,
Thank You

Your code so far


function filteredArray(arr, elem) {
  let newArr = [];
  // change code below this line
  for(let i=0;i<arr.lenght;i++){
    for(let j=0;j<3;j++){
      if(arr[i][j]==elem){
         arr.splice(i,1);
         console.log(arr);
         break;
      }
    }
  }
  return arr;
  // change code above this line
}

// change code here to test different cases:
console.log(filteredArray([[3, 2, 3], [1, 6, 3], [3, 13, 26], [19, 3, 9]], 3));

This is a typo: i<arr.lenght

After that you have a problem in the if statement too: when you use splice the index of all the other elements will be reduced by one, it means you can’t delete two inner arrays one following the other ^^

Thank You @Layer I have made the corrections and got to learn some more things.

Also in this exercise you are requested to return the newArr. Also with the function myArr.indexOf(whatYouAreLookingFor), you don’t need to loop inside your nested array.

function filteredArray(arr, elem) {
  let newArr = [];
  // change code below this line
  for(let i = 0; i < arr.length; i++){
     if (arr.indexOf(elem) === -1) {
        newArr.push(arr[i]);
     }
  }
  return newArr;
  // change code above this line
}

Hello DwightMint, The main problem which I found was first that layer mentioned i.e spelling error, second is as I am removing elements from the initials index all the index of other elements changes hence I must delete from the last of the array. This solution was suggested by @Christinakal,

Thank You
