JavaScript: Check whether a given fraction is proper or not

JavaScript Basic: Exercise-133 with Solution

Write a JavaScript program to check whether a given fraction is proper or not.

Note: There are two types of common fractions, proper or improper. When the numerator and the denominator are both positive, the fraction is called proper if the numerator is less than the denominator, and improper otherwise.

Sample Solution:

HTML Code:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
  <meta charset="utf-8">
  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width">
  <title>Check whether a given fraction is proper or not</title>
</head>
<body>

</body>
</html>

JavaScript Code:

function proper_improper_test(num) {
  return Math.abs(num[0] / num[1]) < 1
    ? "Proper fraction."
    : "Improper fraction.";
}
console.log(proper_improper_test([12, 300]));
console.log(proper_improper_test([2, 4]));
console.log(proper_improper_test([103, 3]));
console.log(proper_improper_test([104, 2]));
console.log(proper_improper_test([5, 40]));

Sample Output:

Proper fraction.
Proper fraction.
Improper fraction.
Improper fraction.
Proper fraction.

    : "Improper fraction.";
}
console.log(proper_improper_test([12, 300]));

console.log(proper_improper_test([103, 3]));
console.log(proper_improper_test([104, 2]));
console.log(proper_improper_test([5, 40]));

JavaScript: Tips of the Day

Promise object

const myPromise = () => Promise.resolve('I have resolved!');

function firstFunction() {
  myPromise().then(res => console.log(res));
  console.log('second');
}

async function secondFunction() {
  console.log(await myPromise());
  console.log('second');
}

firstFunction();
secondFunction();

With a promise, we basically say I want to execute this function, but I'll put it aside for now while it's running since this might take a while. Only when a certain value is resolved (or rejected), and when the call stack is empty, I want to use this value.
We can get this value with both .then and the await keyword in an async function. Although we can get a promise's value with both .then and await, they work a bit differently.
In the firstFunction, we (sort of) put the myPromise function aside while it was running, but continued running the other code, which is console.log('second') in this case. Then, the function resolved with the string I have resolved, which then got logged after it saw that the callstack was empty.
With the await keyword in secondFunction, we literally pause the execution of an async function until the value has been resolved before moving to the next line.
This means that it waited for the myPromise to resolve with the value I have resolved, and only once that happened, we moved to the next line: second got logged.
