`hint [3/6]`

- Creating an array with the Roman Numerals and one with the decimal equivalent for the new forms will be very helpful.

`hint`

`hint [4/6]`

- If you add the numbers that go before the new letter is introduced, it will save you plenty of code, like values for 4, 9, and 40.

`hint [5/6]`

- You can't have more than three consecutive Roman numerals together.

`hint [6/6]`

**Solution ahead!**

```
var convert = function(num) {
// Create arrays with default conversion with matching indices.
var decimalValue = [ 1000, 900, 500, 400, 100, 90, 50, 40, 10, 9, 5, 4, 1 ];
var romanNumeral = [ 'M', 'CM', 'D', 'CD', 'C', 'XC', 'L', 'XL', 'X', 'IX', 'V', 'IV', 'I' ];
//empty string variable for the final roman number
var romanized = '';
// Loop through the indices of the decimalValue array.
for (var index = 0; index < decimalValue.length; index++) {
// Continue to loop while the value at the current index will fit into numCopy
while (decimalValue[index] <= num) {
// Add the Roman numeral & decrease numCopy by the decimal equivalent.
romanized += romanNumeral[index];
num -= decimalValue[index];
}
}
return romanized;
};
```

@Deepak Chairman that what I am looking for code like yours. Need some advice and help in numeral-roman converter challenge. I I have already solved the challenge but I need to use of splice , indexOf and join methods. Also need to avoid nested loop. I know you can use higher order functions to avoid the loop. Or functional method. Thank you for your help.
