Learn Basic Algorithmic Thinking by Building a Number Sorter - Step 7

Tell us what’s happening:

The console is telling me that my map callback function needs an implicit return. I’ve tried many different combos of returns and can’t find a single one that it likes.

Your code so far

const sortInputArray = (event) => {

  const inputValues = [...document.getElementsByClassName("values-dropdown")].map((dropdown) =>

Hey @Ryne-Carter,

You are very close to the solution, but the challenge states:

When you put Number(${dropdown.value}) inside of the template literal string, it is now just a string that says something like Number(32).

Instead of returning a string, you need to return a number so if you strip the strings from the return statement, you’ll be right as rain!
