Pictorial Presentation:

JavaScript: Find the number of elements which presents in both of the given arrays.

Sample Solution:

HTML Code:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
  <meta charset="utf-8">
  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width">
  <title>Find the number of elements which presents in both of the given arrays.</title>
</head>
<body>

</body>
</html>

JavaScript Code:

function test_same_elements_both_arrays(arra1, arra2) {
  var result = 0;
  for(var i = 0; i < arra1.length; i++) {
    for(var j = 0; j < arra2.length; j++){
      if(arra1[i] === arra2[j])
      {
        result++;
      }
    }
  }
  return result;
}
console.log(test_same_elements_both_arrays([1,2,3,4], [1,2,3,4]));
console.log(test_same_elements_both_arrays([1,2,3,4], [1,2,3,5]));
console.log(test_same_elements_both_arrays([1,2,3,4], [11,22,33,44]));

Sample Output:

4

JavaScript: Tips of the Day

Checks if a string is an anagram of another string (case-insensitive, ignores spaces, punctuation and special characters)

Example:

const isAnagram = (str1, str2) => {
  const normalize = str =>
    str
      .toLowerCase()
      .replace(/[^a-z0-9]/gi, '')
      .split('')
      .sort()
      .join('');
  return normalize(str1) === normalize(str2);
};
console.log(isAnagram('iceman', 'cinema')); // true

Output:

true
