Sample Solution:

HTML Code:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
  <meta charset="utf-8">
  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width">
  <title>JavaScript program to find a value which is nearest to 100 from two different given integer values.</title>
</head>
<body>

</body>
</html>

JavaScript Code:

function near_100(x, y) {
  if (x != y)
  {
  x1 = Math.abs(x - 100);
  y1 = Math.abs(y - 100);

  if (x1 < y1)
  {
    return x;
  }
  if (y1 < x1)
  {
    return y;
  }
  return 0;
  }
  else
    return false;
}

console.log(near_100(90, 89));
console.log(near_100(-90, -89));
console.log(near_100(90, 90));

Sample Output:

90
-89
false

JavaScript: Tips of the Day

Parameter's value

function getItems(fruitList, ...args, favoriteFruit) {
  return [...fruitList, ...args, favoriteFruit]
}

getItems(["banana", "apple"], "pear", "orange")

...args is a rest parameter. The rest parameter's value is an array containing all remaining arguments, and can only be the last parameter! In this example, the rest parameter was the second parameter. This is not possible, and will throw a syntax error.

function getItems(fruitList, favoriteFruit, ...args) {
  return [...fruitList, ...args, favoriteFruit];
}


getItems(['banana', 'apple'], 'pear', 'orange');
The above example works. This returns the array [ 'banana', 'apple', 'orange', 'pear' ].
