# Sum All Numbers in a Range confusion

Tell us what’s happening:
Hi everyone,
I am trying to understand what’s going on with my code. It seems that if arr[1] >= 10, the result is always 0. What am I doing wrong? Any help would be appreciated.

``````
"use strict";

var sumAll = (arr) => {
arr.sort();

let sum = 0,
min = arr[0],
max = arr[1];

for(let i=min;i<=max;i++) sum += i;

return sum;
}

console.log(sumAll([1, 4]));
``````

The clue you need is in the instructions “The lowest number will not always come first.”

What about arr.sort() ? Doesn’t it change the original state of the array?

the sort() function by default sorts by converting data to the unicode and then sorting, unless you give it a function to execute. Here is the link to the MDN article:

And try this version of the code.

`arr.sort(function(a, b) { return a - b; });`

@zakattack194 Thank you very much for the clarification.
