/* UPDATED NOVEMBER 2021 to work with the latest FreeCodeCamp tests
Design a cash register drawer function checkCashRegister() that accepts purchase price as the first argument (price),
payment as the second argument (cash), and cash-in-drawer (cid) as the third argument.
cid is a 2D array listing available currency.
The checkCashRegister() function should always return an object with a status key and a change key.
Return {status: "INSUFFICIENT_FUNDS", change: []} if cash-in-drawer is less than the change due, or if you cannot return
the exact change.
Return {status: "CLOSED", change: [...]} with cash-in-drawer as the value for the key change if it is equal to the change due.
Otherwise, return {status: "OPEN", change: [...]}, with the change due in coins and bills, sorted in highest to lowest order,
as the value of the change key.
nickihastings / boo-who.js
Created Mar 22, 2018
Check if a value is classified as a boolean primitive. Return true or false. Boolean primitives are true and false.

function booWho(bool) {
// What is the new fad diet for ghost developers? The Boolean.
//check if the value 'bool' is strictly true or false, this means the value is a Boolean Primitive and should return true.
//Everything else should return false.

return true;

nickihastings / symmetric-difference.js
Last active Nov 1, 2021
Create a function that takes two or more arrays and returns an array of the symmetric difference (△ or ⊕) of the provided arrays. Given two sets (for example set A = {1, 2, 3} and set B = {2, 3, 4}), the mathematical term "symmetric difference" of two sets is the set of elements which are in either of the two sets, but not in both (A △ B = C = {…

//Put the arguments into an array
var arrArgs =;
//Function to compare two arrays by reducing each one in
//comparison with the other. Check if the item in first array
//is also in the second array, if it isn't push it to the accumulator.
//then repeat the other way around.

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.
