Counting smaller and greater in JavaScript

JavascriptWeb DevelopmentFront End TechnologyObject Oriented Programming

Suppose, we have an array of literals like this −

const arr = [3, 5, 5, 2, 23, 4, 7, 8, 8, 9];

We are required to write a JavaScript function that takes in this array and a number, say n, and returns an object representing the count of elements greater than and smaller than n.

Therefore, let’s write the code for this function −

Example

The code for this will be −

const arr = [3, 5, 5, 2, 23, 4, 7, 8, 8, 9];
const smallerLargerNumbers = (arr, num) => {
   return arr.reduce((acc, val) => {
      let { greater, smaller } = acc;
      if(val > num){
         greater++;
      };
      if(val < num){
         smaller++;
      };
      return { greater, smaller };
   }, {
      greater: 0,
      smaller: 0
   });
};
console.log(smallerLargerNumbers(arr, 3));

Output

The output in the console will be −

{ greater: 8, smaller: 1 }
