JavaScript JavaScript Loops, Arrays and Objects Tracking Multiple Items with Arrays Iterating through an Array

Not sure what I'm doing wrong in this challenge. Error message is: "The items in the array weren't logged out in order."

Using for loop

script.js
var temperatures = [100,90,99,80,70,65,30,10];

function currentTemp (list) {
  for (var i=0; i < list.length; i+=1) {
    console.log(i);
  }
}

currentTemp(temperatures);

Hi Deana,

You forgot to log the numbers from the array, you are currently logging the index number. You just need to add the array with '[i]' to pull out the numbers.

var temperatures = [100,90,99,80,70,65,30,10];

function currentTemp (list) {
  for (var i=0; i < list.length; i+=1) {
    console.log(temperatures[i]);
  }
}

currentTemp(temperatures);

Thank you! I didn't realize the i variable needed to be in a bracket. Much appreciated!

Actually, in your case you are passing the Array into the function as the variable 'list', so you could log this instead of the 'temperatures'. This will make it more customisable.

  console.log(list[i]);
