Found a bug with your JS approach

I found an issue with your JS approach. For the midpoint you are using collection.length / 2 which would continue to give you the same value. It should be Math.floor((start + last) /2) instead of Math.floor(collection.length /2). Hopefully this was helpful.

Thank you again for your wonderful class, I am learning a lot.
