Learn Recursion by Building a Decimal to Binary Converter - Step 33

Tell us what’s happening:

I am failing to find a solution

remainders.reverse([0, 1, 1]).join(""); result.innerText = "";

reverse is array method, that can be called from the array that should be reversed. For example:

const array = [1, 0, 1, 1];
console.log(array.reverse());  // [1, 1, 0, 1]

Once you have that reversed array, that’s joined with the empty string, that’s what should be assigned to the result.innerText.

Thank you. Unfortunately I am still struggling to understand this…

What’s your updated code? What exactly is confusing you right now? (Or easier might be writing how you are understanding this right now)

The problem is I am not understanding it at all. I am not sure that I understand the question.
I have tried this:
remainders.reverse([0, 1, 1]); remainders.join(""); result.innerText = "";
but I only guessing!

I have now figured it out and passed the test. Thanks for your help Sanity.
