JS Basic - Manipulate Arrays With unshift(

Tell us what’s happening:

There seems to be a problem here, please correct me if I am wrong.

When using myArray.unshift([“Paul”, 35]), the outcome should be [[“Paul”, 35], [“John”, 23],[“dog”, 3]] as the unshift method add to array to the beginning of myArray but the expected outcome should be :
myArray should now have [[“Paul”, 35], [“dog”, 3]].

I have changed myArray[0] to get to the outcome and did not require unshift at all?

Your code so far

// Setup
var myArray = [["John", 23], ["dog", 3]];
myArray[0] = ["Paul", 35];

// Only change code below this line

Challenge: Manipulate Arrays With unshift()

Link to the challenge:

Hi Schalk,
you are right, your code returns the same output. The point of the exercise is to introduce the unshift() method though … The test description "myArray should now have [["Paul", 35], ["dog", 3]]" does likely not reveal all that is being tested. Given the context, you likely have to use the unshift() and only change/add code below the line indicated in the comment.
