Sum All Primes feedback on a completed solution

Tell us what’s happening:
Hi guys,

I’d like some feedback on my code. I have in my eyes a very ugly implementation of sieve of eratosthenes. Although I have a successful solution, I’m not happy with this code.

I came from python, I had in my mind a hazy memory of using a booleans and reading the wiki. I ended up pulling up my old python code from last year.

I would appreciate any comments from my fellow peers.


  **Your code so far**

function sumPrimes(num) {
let mymultiples = [1];
let myprimes = [];

for (let i = 2; i <= num; i ++){
  if (!mymultiples.includes(i)){
  for (let j = i**2; j <= num + 1; j = j + i){
    if (!mymultiples.includes(j)){
let sum = 0;
for (let i in myprimes){
  sum += myprimes[i];
return sum;

That much pushing will slow down your code.

To compare, see my solution here

I also wrote the guide solutions if you want a simpler version of the sieve to compare to.

Thanks Jeremy, this helps.
