I'm not sure where I'm going wrong in my for loop in JavaScript?

I am working on bringing back an array that contains names. I want to bring back the array with all the names except Samir. Can someone point me in the right direction where I'm going wrong? I'm sure it's obvious but I can't seem to see where.

const users = [ {name: 'Samir'}, {name: 'Angela'}, {name: 'Beatrice'} ];

for( i = 0; i < users.length; i++){ if(users.name !== 'Samir'){

console.log(users[i]); } }

You're welcome, just remember these concepts:

  • You were trying to access an object literal with users.name, this wasn't working because users is an array of objects.
  • To access items in an array (in this case, objects), you use bracket notation [0] which accesses the first item in the array as they are zero-indexed.
  • Since loops conveniently use an index to iterate through all the items of an array, you can use that users[i].name
