JavaScript: Compute the absolute difference between a specified number and 19

JavaScript Basic: Exercise-17 with Solution

Write a JavaScript program to compute the absolute difference between a specified number and 19. Returns triple their absolute difference if the specified number is greater than 19.

Sample Solution:

HTML Code:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
  <meta charset="utf-8">
  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width">
  <title>JavaScript program to compute the absolute difference between a specified number and 19.  Returns triple their absolute difference if the specified number is greater than 19.</title>
</head>
<body>

</body>
</html>

JavaScript Code:

function diff_num(n) {
  if (n <= 19) {
    return (19 - n);
    }
  else
    {
     return (n - 19) * 3;
    }
}

console.log(diff_num(12));
console.log(diff_num(19));
console.log(diff_num(22));

Sample Output:

7
0
9

    }
  else
    {
     return (n - 19) * 3;
    }
}

console.log(diff_num(12));
console.log(diff_num(19));
console.log(diff_num(22));

JavaScript: Tips of the Day

Classes/function constructors

class Person {
  constructor() {
    this.name = 'Owen';
  }
}

Person = class AnotherPerson {
  constructor() {
    this.name = 'Eddie';
  }
};

const member = new Person();
console.log(member.name);

We can set classes equal to other classes/function constructors. In this case, we set Person equal to AnotherPerson. The name on this constructor is Eddie, so the name property on the new Person instance member is "Eddie".
