JavaScript: Get all possible subset with a fixed length combinations in an array

JavaScript Function: Exercise-21 with Solution

Write a JavaScript function to get all possible subset with a fixed length (for example 2) combinations in an array.

Sample array : [1, 2, 3] and subset length is 2

Expected output : [[2, 1], [3, 1], [3, 2], [3, 2, 1]]

Sample Solution: -

HTML Code:

<!DOCTYPE html>
  <meta charset="utf-8">
  <title>JavaScript array subset</title>


JavaScript Code:

function subset(arra, arra_size)
    var result_set = [], 
for(var x = 0; x < Math.pow(2, arra.length); x++)
    result = [];
    i = arra.length - 1; 
      if( (x & (1 << i)) !== 0)
        }  while(i--);

    if( result.length >= arra_size)

    return result_set; 

console.log(subset([1, 2, 3], 2));

Previous: Write a JavaScript function that generates a string id (specified length) of random characters.
Next: Write a JavaScript function that accepts two arguments, a string and a letter and the function will count the number of occurrences of the specified letter within the string.

JavaScript: Tips of the Day


const name = 'Owen';


The variable name holds the value of a string, which is not a function, thus cannot invoke.
TypeErrors get thrown when a value is not of the expected type. JavaScript expected name to be a function since we're trying to invoke it. It was a string however, so a TypeError gets thrown: name is not a function!
SyntaxErrors get thrown when you've written something that isn't valid JavaScript, for example when you've written the word return as retrun. ReferenceErrors get thrown when JavaScript isn't able to find a reference to a value that you're trying to access.
