# JavaScript: Create a function that accepts up to n arguments, ignoring any additional arguments

## JavaScript fundamental (ES6 Syntax): Exercise-258 with Solution

Write a JavaScript program to create a function that accepts up to n arguments, ignoring any additional arguments.

• Call the provided function, fn, with up to n arguments, using Array.prototype.slice(0, n) and the spread operator (...).

Sample Solution:

JavaScript Code:

``````//#Source https://bit.ly/2neWfJ2
// Define a function 'ary' that takes a function 'fn' and a number 'n', returning a new function that accepts up to 'n' arguments
const ary = (fn, n) => (...args) => fn(...args.slice(0, n));

// Define a function 'firstTwoMax' that limits the maximum number of arguments to 2 using 'ary' with 'Math.max'
const firstTwoMax = ary(Math.max, 2);

// Map over an array of arrays, applying 'firstTwoMax' to each inner array
console.log([[2, 6, 'a'], [8, 4, 6], [10]].map(x => firstTwoMax(...x))); // [6, 8, 10] (maximum of the first two elements in each inner array)
```
```

Output:

```[6,8,10]
```
