Help with a challange

Hi, This is my code: var temperatures = [100,90,99,80,70,65,30,10]; for (i=0; i<1; i++){ temperatures.sort(function(a, b){ return b - a; }); }; console.log(temperatures);

It is working in chrome console, but when I am submitting the work I got an error saying that the results were not in order..

Thank you.

script.js
var temperatures = [100,90,99,80,70,65,30,10];
for (i=0; i<1; i++){
temperatures.sort(function(a, b){
  return b - a;
});
};
console.log(temperatures);

You have made this more complex than need be. Sorting isn't necessary. You only need to log the temperatures to the console inside the loop.

i don t think i understood. i have this code now: var temperatures = [100,90,99,80,70,65,30,10]; for (i=0; i<1; i++) { console.log(temperatures); }

and the error is: Bummer: The items in the array weren't logged out in order. Your should log all the temperatures in order, starting at 100 and ending at 10.

in google chrome console everything is ok.. thank you
