Picking the largest elements from multidimensional array in JavaScript

JavascriptWeb DevelopmentFront End TechnologyObject Oriented Programming

We have an array of arrays of Numbers like this one −

const arr = [
   [1, 16, 34, 48],
   [6, 66, 2, 98],
   [43, 8, 65, 43],
   [32, 98, 76, 83],
   [65, 89, 32, 4],
];

We are required to write a function that maps over this array of arrays and returns an array that contains the maximum (greatest) element from each subarray.

So, for this array, the output should be −

const output = [
   48,
   98,
   65,
   83,
   89
];

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

Example

The code for this will be −

const arr = [
   [1, 16, 34, 48],
   [6, 66, 2, 98],
   [43, 8, 65, 43],
   [32, 98, 76, 83],
   [65, 89, 32, 4],
];
const constructBig = arr => {
   return arr.map(sub => {
      const max = Math.max(...sub);
      return max;
   });
};
console.log(constructBig(arr));

Output

The output in the console will be −

[ 48, 98, 65, 98, 89 ]
