Learn Basic Algorithmic Thinking by Building a Number Sorter - Step 27

Tell us what’s happening:

Sorry, your code does not pass. Don’t give up.

After your nested for loop, you should declare a temp variable.
but thats what i did

Your code so far

const selectionSort = (array) => {
for (let i = 0; i < array.length; i++) {
let minIndex = i;

for (let j = i + 1; j < array.length; j++) {
  console.log(array, array[j], array[minIndex]);
  if (array[j] < array[minIndex]) {
    minIndex = j;
    
  }
};
  temp = array[i];
  array[i] = array[minIndex];
  array[minIndex] = temp;

}
}

WARNING

The challenge seed code and/or your solution exceeded the maximum length we can port over from the challenge.

You will need to take an additional step here so the code you wrote presents in an easy to read format.

Please copy/paste all the editor code showing in the challenge from where you just linked.

Replace these two sentences with your copied code.
Please leave the ``` line above and the ``` line below,
because they allow your code to properly format in the post.

stuck for more than hour

const selectionSort = (array) => {

The latest code you have posted is passing for me. I have blurred it to avoid spoilers.
