# Learn Basic Algorithmic Thinking by Building a Number Sorter - Step 44

### Tell us what’s happening:

I don’t know where I messed up, it suggested that I should use an explicit return

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

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

const sortedValues = inputValues.sort((a, b) => {
if(a<b){
return -1;
}else if(a>b){
return 1;
}else{
return 0;
}
});

// User Editable Region
``````
``````/* file: styles.css */

``````

Hello @a2211226566 !

The error hint provides the solution to the step.

It only wants one line; not the if, else if, or else.

It states in the ` return a single subtraction calculation using a and b`

and the error message shows us how to provide that line.

I hope this helps you.

Wishing you good progress on your coding journey.

Thank you! I didn’t notice this, maybe next time I should focus on the steps instead of the prompts…

You are very welcome.

No worries! We all interpret things differently, and learn from corrections.

And, I took a while to figure this one out, myself, even though it was right there. So, do not feel too bad.

Wishing you good success on your coding journey!
