Stand in Line. just like at walmart

I can’t get my head around this stuff. I don’t understand what is supposed to happen. where to put the numbers. Nothing.

Your code so far

function nextInLine(arr, item) {
  // Your code here
  var remove = arr.shift();
  return removed;  // Change this line

// Test Setup
var testArr = [1,2,3,4,5];

// Display Code
console.log("Before: " + JSON.stringify(testArr));
console.log(nextInLine(testArr, 6)); // Modify this line to test
console.log("After: " + JSON.stringify(testArr));

Link to the challenge:

You’re very close. The devil is in the details.

So the function passes an array, and an item to append to that array. When you append that item, you should remove the first item from that array (as you’ve done, to a variable you’ve named remove). Then, you should return the item that’s been removed from the array (which you try to do by return removed).

Only issue is, you have no variable named removed to return. Where did you assign that pesky arr.shift()? that is what you want to return.
