# JavaScript: Sum of the Two highest Numbers

## JavaScript Math: Exercise-84 with Solution

Write a JavaScript program to calculate the sum of the two highest positive numbers in a given array.

**Test Data:**

([1,2,6,3,4,5,6,7]) ->13

([2,3,4,5]) -> 9

**Sample Solution:**

**JavaScript Code:**

```
/**
* Function to find the sum of the two highest numbers in an array.
* @param {number[]} nums - The input array of numbers.
* @returns {number} - The sum of the two highest numbers in the array.
*/
function test(nums) {
// Filter out negative numbers from the array, sort it in ascending order,
// take the last two elements (the two highest numbers), and sum them.
return nums.filter((el) => el >= 0) // Filter out negative numbers
.sort((x, y) => x - y) // Sort the array in ascending order
.slice(-2) // Take the last two elements (the two highest numbers)
.reduce((acc, el) => acc + el); // Sum the two highest numbers
}
// Test cases
// Assign value to nums
nums = [1, 2, 6, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7];
// Print the value of nums
console.log("nums = " + nums);
// Find the sum of the two highest numbers in the said array
console.log("Sum of the two highest numbers of the said array: " + test(nums));
// Repeat the above steps for a different value of nums
nums = [2, 3, 4, 5];
console.log("nums = " + nums);
console.log("Sum of the two highest numbers of the said array: " + test(nums));
```

Output:

nums = 1,2,6,3,4,5,6,7 Sum of the two highest numbers of the said array: 13 nums = 2,3,4,5 Sum of the two highest numbers of the said array: 9
