They give you a beginner track and a more intermediate track for people already familiar with programming
Like you can choose to do harder versions of the problem set

Hey room, I'm currently working on a code challenge which is "find pairs equal to the given difference." I'm given an array of numbers and my output must be an array of arrays where the inner arrays are the subtractor at array[0] and the subtractee at array [1]. I've been trying to think of a way to do this recursively with Javascript. Is it possible do to so with the output I'm required to return from the function? Here is some of the work/musing:
