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

This should work...Shouldn't it?

This is the error I get when run my code to iterate through this array of temperatures. It should work but what am I missing?

Error is:

There was an error with your code: TypeError: 'undefined' is not an object (evaluating 'console.log._args[i][0]')

code is as follows:

var temperatures = [100,90,99,80,70,65,30,10]; var largest = 0;

for (var i = 0; i < temperatures.length ; i += 1){ if ( largest < temperatures[i]) {

 largest = temperatures[i]; 

}

}

console.log(largest);

Any and all help would be awesome on this. I have racked my brain on this for a few hours now and everything I have tried does not work. I may be over thinking it.

script.js
var temperatures = [100,90,99,80,70,65,30,10];
var largest = 0;

for (var i = 0; i < temperatures.length ; i += 1){
        if ( largest < temperatures[i]) {

     largest = temperatures[i]; 

    }

}

console.log(largest);

Hi Patrick,

Use a for or while loop to iterate through the values in the temperatures array from the first item -- 100 -- to the last -- 10. Inside the loop, log the current array value to the console.

Based on the question, you need to print out all elements in the array (not the largest value).

Hey thanks for your help on this. I was just over thinking this problem.
