Learn Basic Algorithmic Thinking by Building a Number Sorter - Step 41

Tell us what’s happening:

"Sorry, your code does not pass. Try again.

Your callback function should use an explicit return."
explicit return to what exactly?

Your code so far

const sortedValues = inputValues.sort((a, b) => {
if (a < 0 && b < 0) {

return a - b;

} else if (a > 0 && b > 0) {

return b - a;

} else {

return 0;

}
});

Learn Basic Algorithmic Thinking by Building a Number Sorter - Step 41

Welcome to our community!

The instructions: " … return a single subtraction calculation using a and b that will correctly sort the numbers with the above logic".

You should return a single subtraction calculation, with explicit return. There is no need to use an if…else statement at all.

Reset the step.
