Is there any possible way of making the cheat possible on some of these? All it will let me do is see the hint but won't ever show the cheat button. Fair enough that it's wrong to cheat but since

• #### niveoserenity

I got the answer in the end, but my first attempt was:

int CC = ar[ar.length-1];
int VV = ar[0];
return CC + VV;

• #### niveoserenity

Didn't work :(

• #### Learneroo

@Aaron, I added a little more hint and an explanation.

• #### Brandon Hall

int[] fl = new int[2];
fl[0] = ar[0];
fl[1] = ar[ar.length - 1];
return fl;

• #### Robin Elliott

Thanks for the site I am really learning from it.
One thing I'd like to be able to do is practice typing things out as I'm following along with your explanations. I think it would help reinforce

• #### Learneroo

@Robin, if you just want to take notes I think it would make sense to do in your own note-taking program, though we can consider adding such a feature. Note that if you click on "split-screen

Just a funny quote here... On the challenge Second-to-Last i scratched my head for two days trying to think how to declare the variable in a single sentence the reason was because i was understanding: from the second (meaning starting at index 1) to the last, rather than actually thinking about penultimate! Frustrated not being able to declare the variable i decided that i was not understanding the exercise, clear enough google explained me second-to-last=penultimate... OMG LOL

What does "Second to last" mean?

HOLY MOLY. 2D ARRAYS MADE MY SUDOKU SOLVER EASIER!

And here is the answer for the challenge:

int [] ars = {ar [0], ar [ar.length -1]};
return ars;

If you get a number from an array, and do not know what slot its in. Is there a code to retrieve the slot?
Example;
I found the largest number in the array and want to know what slot that is in.

• #### Bernard Mitchell

I don't understand why my challenges are wrong:
1. int n = numbers[6];
2. boolean [] frank= new boolean [6];

• #### thales

I had the write awnser but it still does not work, what is wrong in this:

int[] ar2 = new int[2];
ar2[0] = ar[0];
ar2[1] = ar[ar.lenght - 1];
return ar2;

• #### thales

sorry i solved it lenght mus be length pfffffffffffff :-)

Is the free memebership limit forever? Doesn't it restore after certain time?

• #### Learneroo

It doesn't currently restore since it's considered a free trial.

• #### Gary

Or declare regular variables:

int a = ar[0];
int b = ar[ar.length -1];
int[] az = {a,b};

return az;

Second-to-last means, the second element in the array starting counting from the last index.

import java.util.Scanner;

int[] numbers={2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9};

System.out.print(numbers[i]);
if(i==6){
n=numbers[i]

Do it easy guys ...
int[] res = {ar[0], ar[ar.length -1]};
return res;
