Stupid question about .push()

Stupid question about .push()

Hey. My .push does not work from the if statement. What should I do to make it work? Code:

function getIndexToIns(arr, num) {
var arrInitial=arr.slice.call(arguments); 
var arrFrom=arrInitial[0].sort(function(a, b) {
  return a - b;
});
var final=[]; //empty array where x should go
var toDelete=arrInitial.slice(1); 
  for (x=0;x<arrFrom.length;x++) {
  if (arrFrom[x] >= toDelete[0]) {
   final.push (x); //push which supposed to be working
  } 
  }
  return final;
}
getIndexToIns([2, 5, 10], 15);

It does work. But arrFrom[x] >= toDelete[0] is never true for the arguments you pass to the function. Try getIndexToIns([2, 5, 16], 15); to see that push() is working.

So most likely the code is doing something else than you expect it to do. Is this a FCC challenge?

Tnx. Yep, it’s Where do I belong challenge. Strange things, but when I had “return x” instead of “final.push(x)”, FCC told me that almost everything was fine. A glitch?

No, that is almost correct. To fix your current code to return the same as just return x is using return final[0] instead of final , since final is an array and you have to return a number.

The only case that isn’t working is when none of the numbers in the array is larger than the number that must be inserted.

Oh my god, that was soooo obvious) Thank you very much!

I’m already working on it)

Not a “stupid” question. Be kinder to yourself.
