What about commas?

It works but what about commas between arrays? Is it possible to remove them?

var students = [ 
  { 
    name: 'Dave',
    track: 'Front End Development',
    achievements: 158,
    points: 14730
  },
  {
    name: 'Jody',
    track: 'iOS Development with Swift',
    achievements: '175',
    points: '16375'
  },
  {
    name: 'Jordan',
    track: 'PHP Development',
    achievements: '55',
    points: '2025'
  },
  {
    name: 'John',
    track: 'Learn WordPress',
    achievements: '40',
    points: '1950'
  },
  {
    name: 'Trish',
    track: 'Rails Development',
    achievements: '5',
    points: '350'
  }
];

function print(message) {
var element = document.getElementById('output'); 
element.innerHTML = message; 
};

let firstArray = [];

for (let i = 0; i < students.length; i += 1)  {     
let firstVar = `<b>Name: </b>` + students[i].name +  '<br>' 
             + `<b>Track: </b>` +students[i].track + '<br>'
             + `<b>Achievements: </b>` +students[i].achievements + '<br>'
             + `<b>Points: </b>` +students[i].points + '<br><br>';
firstArray.push(firstVar);
firstArray.join(` `)
};
print(firstArray);

The commas are a result of how the system converts the array into a string. It looks like you intended to do the conversion yourself with "join", but it's not effective as it is currently coded. But you can convert is as you print it to get the desired result:

print(firstArray.join(''));

I can't believe it was that simple. Thank you very much :)
