Learn Basic Algorithmic Thinking by Building a Number Sorter - Step 36

Tell us what’s happening:

I was trying to code current value into the correct index.(step 36), but I can’t go through,

Your code so far

const insertionSort = (array) => {
for (let i = 1; i < array.length; i++) {
const currValue = array[i];
let j = i - 1;

while (j >= 0 && array[j] > currValue) {
  array[j + 1] = array[j];
  array[j + 1] = currValue;



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.

Hi there. Per this particular exercise’s directions, you need to assign currValue outside of the while loop.

"After your while loop, you need to insert your current value. Remember that your loop ends when j is either out of the array bounds, or when the value at j is less than your current value.

Use the assignment operator to insert your current value into the correct index."

Hope this helps. :slight_smile:
