Problem :

My function accepts the two arrays of integers and returns true if below conditions are met

1.      Arrays have the same length and

2.      Each m.element should be less than each n.element of the same index

All my test cases are passing except when int[] m = {1, 2, 3} and int[] n = {4, 5, 1}.

It is returning true even if m[2] > n[2]. Here digitDifference check is not working correctly but I am not getting any error.

Please find below my code:

public static boolean ArrayLess(int[] m, int[] n) {

    int j = 0;

    boolean sameLength = (m.length == n.length);

    boolean digitDifference = (m[j] < n[j]);

    for (j = 0; j <= m.length - 1; j++) {}

    return (sameLength && digitDifference);

Solution :

I guess your for loop does nothing, so I think you are only comparing the elements in the first index of your arrays.

Your code must look something like below :

public static boolean ArrayLess (int[] m, int[] n) {
boolean sameLength = (m.length == n.length);
if (!sameLength)
   return false;
    boolean digitDifference = true;
    for (int j = 0; j <= m.length - 1 && digitDifference;j++) {
        digitDifference = (m[j] < n[j]);
    return digitDifference;

Now the newly updated for loop in above code compares each pair of elements having the same index, and terminates if it finds a pair that against your requirement that (m[j] < n[j]).

Problem: Hello good souls, var myarr1 = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]; var myarr2 = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10]; I have two simple arrays like above. I want to sort out the common values between those two arrays. So can you find common elements in two arrays javascript for me? Please keep the program as simple as possible that I can understand easily. Thanks for your effort and valuable time buddy.

Problem: Let me put it as sim as I can. I have an if statement in my code and it returns a value. Since IF is a boolean statement it should return value whether it&rsquo;s true or false. So, in my program when a method tests an argument and returns a true or ... as a parameter in a different method inside an IF statement. How should I do that? Any kind of help is appreciated by my side. Thanks.
