Largest Numbers in Arrays - not working

Tell us what’s happening:

why its not working ??

Your code so far

function largestOfFour(arr) {
  // You can do this!
  let arrList = [];
  arr.forEach(row => { arrList.push(row.sort((a,b)=>a-b).slice(-1))});
  return arrList;

largestOfFour([[17, 23, 25, 12], [25, 7, 34, 48], [4, -10, 18, 21], [-72, -3, -17, -10]]);

Hello @PrvnToddy,

Slice returns an array instead of number. In your case, it is array with 1 element. You can change your sorting function to: (a,b)=>b-a and then take the first element of the sorted array instead of the last one.

you can also replace .slice(-1) by .pop() and there is no need to curly brackets in the arrow function.

Thanks @sherbakov1
arr.forEach(row => { arrList.push(row.sort((a,b)=>b-a)[0])});

Yes, that usage works fine :blush:
