Sorted Union- JS Intermediate Algorithms

Tell us what’s happening:
I use VS Code to write and test the code. My solution code passes all of the tests when I run them via VS Code. But fails all of the tests when entered and submitted on the FCC code editor. How could this be?

 **Your code so far**

function uniteUnique(arr) {
const numSet = new Set([...arr].flat(1));
const numbers = [];
numSet.forEach((value) => numbers.push(value));
return numbers;

uniteUnique([1, 3, 2], [5, 2, 1, 4], [2, 1]);

Challenge: Sorted Union

Link to the challenge:

This isn’t possible, not with the code you’ve posted – it can’t pass any of the tests.

You are taking the first array passed to the function, removing any duplicates, and returning that: this it the output for your function for each of the tests:

uniteUnique([1, 3, 2], [5, 2, 1, 4], [2, 1])
// [1, 3, 2]
uniteUnique([1, 2, 3], [5, 2, 1])
// [1, 2, 3]
uniteUnique([1, 2, 3], [5, 2, 1, 4], [2, 1], [6, 7, 8])
// [1, 2, 3]

What you’ve written is the same as:

function uniteUnique(arr) {
  const numSet = new Set(arr);
  return Array.from(numSet);

And as there are no duplicates in the first array in any of the tests, its the same as:

function uniteUnique(arr) {
  return arr;

The function can take any number of arrays as arguments: at the minute, in the skeleton of the function you get given, arr is only referring to the first array that gets passed in.

Yes I see I missed putting the spread in the parameter.
Should have been : function uniteUnique(…arr)

My problem was that I failed to spot that I did not cut and paste my solution function header until about half an hour later. With the rest
…arr it works fine. Thanks for the help.
