Ch. 4 Exercises

Range function

      function range(begin,end) {
        let endOfSequence = end-begin+1 // number of elements
        let rangeArray = [];
        let start = begin;

// Create array whose values start at ‘begin’

        for(let i=0; i<endOfSequence; i++){
          rangeArray.push(start);
          start++;
        }
        console.log(rangeArray);
        return rangeArray;
      }

console.log(range(1,10));

Sum function

Note: function sum calls the previously submitted function range

// The argument anArray is the array returned by the previous range function
function sum(anArray){
let sumOfArray=0
$.each(anArray, function(index,value){
sumOfArray = sumOfArray + value;

        })

        return sumOfArray;

}

console.log(sum(range(1,10)));

Range function with optional third argument

// Note: Function range2 calls function reverseRange and the previously submitted function
// range

// reverseRange reverses the values of the elements of an array
// It is used by the range2 function to readily implement negative step values e.g. -4, etc.
function reverseRange(begin1, end1){
let endOfSequence = end1-begin1+1
let revRangeArray = [];
let start = begin1;

        for(let i=0; i<endOfSequence; i++){
          revRangeArray.unshift(start);
          start++;
        }

        return revRangeArray;

      }

// If step is undefined or 1 we use the previous range function

// If step is negative we call reverseRange to flip the order of the array so the
// values are flipped so we have last value to first value
// For step < -1 and step >1 we can now build the final array by iterating using step
// value in the case of positive steps and the absolute value of step in the case of negative // steps
function range2(begin1, end1, step) {

        let range2Array = [];
        let tempRange2Array = [];
        if (step == 0){console.log("0 is not a valid step value")}
        else if (step===undefined || step == 1){range2Array = range(begin1,end1);}
        else if (step>1){tempRange2Array = range(begin1,end1);}
        else  {step=0-step; tempRange2Array=reverseRange(begin1,end1);}
        console.log(tempRange2Array.length);

        if (step > 1 || step <-1){
          outputIndex=0
          for (let j=0; j<tempRange2Array.length; j=j+step){
            range2Array[outputIndex] = tempRange2Array[j];
            outputIndex++;

          };
        };
        return range2Array;

      }

Reversing an Array

      function reverseArray (anArray) {
        let rArray = [];
        let j=anArray.length - 1;
        for(let i=0; i<anArray.length; i++){
          rArray[i] = anArray[j];
          j=j-1;

        }

        return rArray;
      }

      theReverseArray=console.log(reverseArray(fruits));

Reversing an Array in Place

// First for loop places values in reverse order by prepending them to the array
// Second for loop pops the original values off the array leaving only the values
// that were reordered by the 1st loop
//

function reverseInPlaceArray (anotherArray) {
iterations=anotherArray.length-1
let j=1;
for(let i=0; i<iterations; i++){
anotherArray.unshift(anotherArray[j]);
j+=2;

        }
        for(let k=0; k<iterations;k++){
          anotherArray.pop();
          }
      }

Your code gave me an idea on how to do the in place array reversal with one loop and in half the iterations, thanks for sharing!

Here’s the code if interested:

function reverseArrayInPlace2(anArray){
                    let numElems = anArray.length;
                    for( i = 0; i<(numElems/2); i++) {
                        let temp = anArray[(numElems - i)-1];
                        
                        anArray[(numElems - i) - 1] = anArray[i];
                        anArray[i] = temp;
                    }
                    
                }

Curt That’s an interesting approach. You use one loop and save on the number of operations. On an 11 element array your function performs 18 writes which improves on my function that does 10 writes and 10 pops (20 manipulations total). Thanks for sharing your function.

The sum of an array

function range(start, end){
  var numberArray = [];
  for (var i = start; i < end + 1; i++){
    numberArray.push(i);
  }
  return numberArray;
}

function sum(item){
  return item.reduce(function(previous, current){
    return previous + current;
  });
}

Reflection: made a few mistakes here and there. Initially, I had placed the array outside the function, which meant that every time I added a new number, or changed the array range, it would add repeat elements inside. Shifted the array into the function and it worked out fine.

Had trouble working out the reduce() function, and still getting used to the idea of anonymous functions. Also, I was stuck during the bonus assignment portion. I was writing many lines of code when the array when from big to small. Turns out the solution was very concise indeed, by using conditionals.

Reverse Array

function reverseArray(array){
      let rArray = [];
      for (var i = array.length - 1; i >= 0; i--){
        rArray.push(array[i]);
      }
      return rArray;
    }

For reverseArrayInPlace, I referred the the solution. My code could not replace the index without messing it up. True to its title, the book’s solution is very concise.

// This Function takes Array l and outputs the reverse of the array x
var x = [];
var i = (l.length);
do{
i --;
x.push(l[i]);
}while (i != 0);
return x;
}

function reverseInPlace(l){
// This Function takes Array l and outputs the reverse of the array x.
// It does this swapping the elements.
var h1;
var h2;
var counter = 0;
var counter2 = (l.length);
	do{
		counter2 --;
		h1 = l[counter];

if (step > 0) {
for (let i = start; i <= end; i+=step) array.push(i);

// i is such that, if < end then i+=1, else i+=-1.

}else {

for (let i = start; i >= end; i+=step) array.push(i);

}

return array;

Hi
My understanding is that they return the same value.
The only difference is that Inplace does an element by elmement swap. May be handy if you are dealing with an array of objects.
However I agree ! this realy isn’t very clear what is required.

}
var testArray=range(1,10);

Answer: The difference between reversArray and reversArrayInPlace is that reversArray takes in an array as an argument an then returns a revers array of this array, it does not change the array given. As for the reversArrayInPlace actually revers the array that is given to the function.

                newStart = newStart + step;
            }
            return returnedArray
        }

This is my way of resolving the second part of the exercise. It took me awhile like 30 min or so to understand the method needed to be used and figure out the math behid it. But at the end it worked. If you have a better solution and a different approach tag me with it. I would like to see other options as well. I gazed upon other codes but they were way too spesific as I could observe which I didn’t observe much but this is more general and can be applied to all sorts of arrays. Just like reverse method does.

et arrray =[1,2,3,4,5];

function reverseArray (array) {
    let newArray = [];
    for (let i = 1; i <= array.length; i++) {
       newArray.push(array[array.length - i])
    }
    return newArray
}

console.log(reverseArray(arrray));


function reverseArrayInPlace (array) {
   for (let counter = array.length-1; counter > 0; counter--) {
       array.splice(array.length, 0, array[counter-1]);
       array.splice(counter-1, 1,);
   }
   return array

Reverse Array in place

function reverseArrayInPlace(arr){
var len = arr.length;
for (var i = 0; i < len/2; i++){
temp = arr[i];
arr[i] = arr[len-1-i];
arr[len-1-i] = temp
}
return arr;
}

The sum of a range

function range(start, end, inc){
var arr = [];
if(inc == undefined) inc = 1;
if(inc > 0){
for(var i = start; i <= end; i=i+inc){
arr.push(i);
}
return arr;
}
if(inc < 0){
inc = Math.abs(inc);
for(var i = end; i >= start; i=i-inc){
arr.push(i);
}
return arr;
}
}
function sum(arr){
var res = 0;
for(var i = 0; i < arr.length; i++){
res += arr[i];
}
return res;
}

Question 1:
function range(start, end, increment) {
var array = [];
var current = start;

increment = increment || 1;
if (increment > 0) {
    while (current <= end) {
        array.push(current);
        current += increment;
    }
} else {
    while (current >= end) {
        array.push(current);
        current += increment;
    }
}
return array;

}

console.log(range(1, 3, 0));
console.log(range(2, 5));
console.log(range(1, 9, 1));
console.log(range(5, 2, -1));

VM120:20 (3) [1, 2, 3]
VM120:21 (4) [2, 3, 4, 5]
VM120:22 (9) [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9]
VM120:23 (4) [5, 4, 3, 2]

Question 2

var returnArray = [];
function reverseArray(anArray) {
index = 0;
for (let i = anArray.length-1; i >= 0; i–) {
returnArray[index] = anArray[i];
index++;
}
return returnArray;
};

	reverseArray([5,7,8,2,1]);
	console.log(returnArray);
