Bonfire: Find the Longest Word in a String, Difficulty: 1

Return the length of the longest word in the provided sentence.

Your response should be a number.

Help:

 

My solution:


function findLongestWord(str) {

Progra//split string and placed in array
var array1 = str.split(‘ ‘);
var word = array1[0];
console.log(array1);

//compare strings in array
for (var i = 0; i < array1.length; i++)
{
if(word.length < array1[i].length)
{
word = array1[i];
}
}

return word.length;
}

findLongestWord(‘The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog’);
