Finding greatest digit by recursion - JavaScript

JavascriptWeb DevelopmentFront End TechnologyObject Oriented Programming

We are required to write a JavaScript recursive function that takes in a number and returns the greatest digit in the number.

For example: If the number is −

45654356

Then the return value should be 6

Example

Following is the code −

const num = 45654356;
const greatestDigit = (num = 0, greatest = 0) => {
   if(num){
      const max = Math.max(num % 10, greatest);
      return greatestDigit(Math.floor(num / 10), max);
   };
   return greatest;
};
console.log(greatestDigit(num));

Output

Following is the output in the console −

6
