OSCC · JavaScript, Array · Oct 22, 2020

Finds the highest index at which a value should be inserted into an array in order to maintain its sort order.

const sortedLastIndex = (arr, n) => {
  const isDescending = arr[0] > arr[arr.length - 1];
  const index = arr
    .reverse()
    .findIndex(el => (isDescending ? n <= el : n >= el));
  return index === -1 ? 0 : arr.length - index;
};
sortedLastIndex([10, 20, 30, 30, 40], 30); // 4
