# Value returned not the same as instructed

I have passed the challenge but this instruction `smallestCommons([23, 18]);` should return `6056820` instead of `910308`

``````function smallestCommons(arr) {
const numArr = arr;
let numIndex = 1;

numArr.map((number, index) => {
let arrMax = Math.max(...numArr);
const arrMin = Math.min(...numArr);
while (arrMax > arrMin) {
if (!numArr.includes(arrMax - 1)) {
numArr.push(arrMax - 1);
}
arrMax--;
}
});

numArr.sort((a, b) => {
return a - b;
});

let numEvery = numArr.every(number => numIndex % number === 0);
while (!numEvery) {
numEvery = numArr.every(number => numIndex % number === 0);
if (numEvery) {
break;
}
numIndex++;
}

return numIndex;
}

console.log(smallestCommons([23, 18])); //910308
``````

Challenge: Smallest Common Multiple

Where are you seeing this?

The last of the six instructions in the challenge “Smallest Common Multiple”.

`smallestCommons([1, 5])` should return a number.

`smallestCommons([1, 5])` should return 60.

`smallestCommons([5, 1])` should return 60.

`smallestCommons([2, 10])` should return 2520.

`smallestCommons([1, 13])` should return 360360.

`smallestCommons([23, 18])` should return 6056820.

Edit: Though now the `console.log` is giving me a different number. Does this have anything to do with the warning message of a possible infinite loop in my `While` block?

I think I am not understanding the problem. I just tested your code and it passed with flying colors. Your code also returns `6056820` for the range `[23, 18]`. So I’m not sure where you are getting the number `910308`.
