Sample Solution: -

HTML Code:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>

        var i;
        var j;

        for (i=0; i < n; i++)
        {
          for (j=0; j < n; j++)
          {
               if (i === j)
               {

JavaScript: Tips of the Day

How to check whether a string contains a substring in JavaScript?

ECMAScript 6 introduced String.prototype.includes:

const string = "foo";
const substring = "oo";

console.log(string.includes(substring));

includes doesn't have Internet Explorer support, though. In ECMAScript 5 or older environments, use String.prototype.indexOf, which returns -1 when a substring cannot be found:

var string = "foo";
var substring = "oo";

console.log(string.indexOf(substring) !== -1);
