Where do I belong (help. what am I missing)?

It seems that I am missing something. Can someone help?

Thanks

function getIndexToIns(arr, num) {
  // Find my place in this sorted array.
  
  
  arr.push(num);
  arr.sort();
  console.log(arr.indexOf(num));
  
  return arr.indexOf(num);
}

I’ve edited your post for readability. When you enter a code block into the forum, precede it with a line of three backticks and follow it with a line of three backticks to make easier to read. See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard. The “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) will also add backticks around text.

Yes, you seem to not be understanding how to correctly use the sort function to sort numbers. You need to supply an applicable compareFunction. Currently, yours does not have such a function, so the function converts the elements to strings and compares them in Unicode code point order. In the test getIndexToIns([3, 10, 5], 3), the 3 gets pushed on the end of the original array [3,10,5] and becomes [3, 10, 5, 3]. Then your sort (with the applicable compare functions) produces [10, 3, 3, 5].

Thank you @ArielLeslie

Thank You @RandellDawson.

Solved:

unction getIndexToIns(arr, num) {
// Find my place in this sorted array.

arr.unshift(num);
arr.sort(function(a,b){
return a - b;
});
console.log(arr.indexOf(num));

return arr.indexOf(num);
}
