How Many Explainer

How Many Explainer

Object of this puzzle Use the .length property to get the number of elements of an array.

Walkthrough of the solution The starter code prints all of the content of the imported array. That is not the best way to count the elements.

Tap listOfDestinations inside of console.log(). Next, with listOfDestinations highlighted, tap the .length button. Now, console.log() can access the number of elements in the array instead of its content.

Example Solution Code:

(Tap to reveal)


import { listOfDestinations } from 'grasshopper.travel';

let numberOfDestinations = listOfDestinations.length;

console.log('There are ' + numberOfDestinations + ' to choose from.');
