Tell us what’s happening:
Hey guys, my script can’t pass only the last test. Actually, the console calculations stop in a specific number. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

``````
function smallestCommons(arr) {
let firstEl = arr[0];
let lastEl = arr[arr.length - 1 ];
let min = 0;
let max = 0;
let newArr = [];
let count = 0;
let lastScm = 0;

if(firstEl < lastEl ){
min = firstEl;
max = lastEl;
}
else{
min = lastEl;
max = firstEl;
}

let divNum = max;

for( let i = min; i <= max; i++ ){
count++;
newArr.push(i);
}

function divCm(divNum){
let sum = 0;
for(let i = min; i <= max; i++){
if(divNum % i == 0){
sum += 1;
}
}
return sum;
}

function getScm(divNum){
let j = 2;
while(lastScm !== count){
lastScm = divCm(divNum);
if(lastScm === count){
return divNum;
}
divNum = max*j;
j++;
}
}

let endScm = getScm(divNum);
console.log(endScm)
return endScm;

}

smallestCommons([23,18]);

The code works, tested on the jsconsole.com. So, is it a bug?

#3

Hi Dimis, same problem… my algorithm worked until I got to the higher numbers then it quit. Running it on https://jsbin.com/ it had the same problem but told me that it quit early on the higher numbers because it was preventing a potential infinite loop. I wonder if the FCC environment has the same check.

It looks like FCC protects infinite loops by breaking then after 500ms has passed. You can try to put a comment `//noprotect` to disable this.
