Finding smallest number using recursion in JavaScript

JavascriptWeb DevelopmentFront End TechnologyObject Oriented Programming

We are required to write a JavaScript function that takes in an array of Numbers and returns the smallest number from it using recursion.

Let’s say the following are our arrays −

const arr1 = [-2,-3,-4,-5,-6,-7,-8];
const arr2 = [-2, 5, 3, 0];

The code for this will be −

const arr1 = [-2,-3,-4,-5,-6,-7,-8];
const arr2 = [-2, 5, 3, 0];
const min = arr => {
   const helper = (a, ...res) => {
      if (!res.length){
         return a;
      };
      if (a < res[0]){
         res[0] = a;
      };
      return helper(...res);
   };
   return helper(...arr);
}
console.log(min(arr1));
console.log(min(arr2));

Following is the output on console −

-8
-2
