Tell us what’s happening:

Your code so far


function filteredArray(arr, elem) {
  let newArr = [];

  // change code below this line
    for(var i; i < arr.length; i++){
      for(var j = 0; j < arr[i].length;j++){
        if(arr[i][j] == elem){
          arr.splice(j,1);
        }
      }
    }
  // change code above this line
  return arr;
}
// change code here to test different cases:
console.log(filteredArray([[3, 2, 3], [1, 6, 3], [3, 13, 26], [19, 3, 9]], 3));

I have a problem to understand why arr[i].length is undefined?

The problem could be that you are modifiying the array while you are looping through it. Try with a small input and follow the execution of the function “by hand”, with pencil and paper, to see what is happening.

Hi,

i is never initialized

Also @zdflower has a point. Look at the example.

Good luck

Here is the solution hope it may help but please try at your own first
function filteredArray(arr, elem) {
let newArr = [];
let i,j;
// change code below this line
for(i = 0; i < arr.length; i++){
for(j = 0; j < arr[i].length; j++){
if(arr[i][j] == elem)
break;
}
if(j == arr[i].length)
newArr.push(arr[i]);
}
// change code above this line
return newArr;
}

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