nickihastings / pairwise.js
Created Apr 17, 2018
Given an array arr, find element pairs whose sum equal the second argument arg and return the sum of their indices. If multiple pairs are possible that have the same numeric elements but different indices, return the smallest sum of indices. Once an element has been used, it cannot be reused to pair with another. For example pairwise([7, 9, 11, …

function pairwise(arr, arg) {
//if its an empty array return 0
if(arr.length === 0){

//reduce the array by looping over the array and checking if the
//sum of the current element and another element = the argument.
//if they match and the indexes of both are different, add the indexes to
//the output array.

Created Apr 17, 2018
Return a new array that transforms the element's average altitude into their orbital periods. The array will contain objects in the format {name: 'name', avgAlt: avgAlt}. You can read about orbital periods on wikipedia. The values should be rounded to the nearest whole number. The body being orbited is Earth. The radius of the earth is 6367.4447…

//orbital radius to the power of 3 divided by the GM
