Learn Basic Algorithmic Thinking by Building a Number Sorter - Step 17

Tell us what’s happening:

Create a variable called sortedValues and assign the value of calling bubbleSort.Also insert sortedValues as the argument of UpdateUI() const sortedValues=bubbleSort() UpdateUI(sortedValues);

Your code so far

<!-- file: index.html -->

/* file: styles.css */

/* file: script.js */
// User Editable Region

const sortedValues = bubbleSort();

What are you sorting here?

I have created a variable sortedValues and assigned it to the call of bubbleSort.

Agreed, but look at the bubbleSort function you created. How many parameters does it take? What are those parameters for?

bubbleSort()am assigning it to sortedValuesOr maybe I am not getting the instructions.

This is the bubbleSort function in your code:

const bubbleSort = (array) => {
  for (let i = 0; i < array.length; i++) {
    for (let j = 0; j < array.length - 1; j++) {
      console.log(array, array[j], array[j + 1]);

How do you need to call this function so it will sort an array?

Just to clarify,We call functions using().bubbleSort() is how I would call this function.Maybe am missing a point?

Inside the bubbleSort function, it is using the variable array. Where did it get that variable from?

Let me ask you this, in the next line you are calling the updateUI function as:


This is correct. Why are you passing sortedValues into that function?
