Tell us what’s happening:
Hello guys i’m stuck in this challenge, why in the last scenario ,
here >> filteredArray([[3, 2, 3], [1, 6, 3], [3, 13, 26], [19, 3, 9]], 3)
only return false 2 times?

Your code so far

``````
function filteredArray(arr, elem) {
let newArr = [];
// change code below this line
for(var i = 0; i < arr.length; i++){
var verify = arr[i].every(function(x){
return (x != elem);
});
if(verify == false){
arr.splice(i,1);
}
}
newArr = arr;
// change code above this line
return newArr;
}

// change code here to test different cases:
console.log(filteredArray([[3, 2, 3], [1, 6, 3], [3, 13, 26], [19, 3, 9]], 3));
``````

In the first iteration, verify becomes false.
Then you use splice and delete the first element of the array => [1, 6, 3 ], [ 3, 13, 26 ], [ 19, 3, 9 ]
In the second iteration, verify becomes false, too.
Then you use splice and delete the second element of the array => [ 1, 6, 3 ], [ 19, 3, 9 ]
In the third iteration, there is no third element and you are finished.

You’re on the right path, but I have to ask: If you’re going to use `every()` inside the loop, why not just `filter()` directly? This would bypass any issues you’re seeing here.

Thanks for your awnser, i fix my code.
function filteredArray(arr, elem) {

let newArr = [];
// change code below this line
for(var i = 0; i < arr.length; i++){
var verify = arr[i].every(function(x){
return (x != elem);
});
if(verify == true){
newArr.push(arr[i]);
}
}

// change code above this line
return newArr;
}

// change code here to test different cases:
console.log(filteredArray([ [“amy”, “beth”, “sam”], [“dave”, “sean”, “peter”] ], “peter”));
