while working with hacker-rank problem-solving challenge, I just stuck in question of finding the results according to given criteria.

Criteria:

1) Find the next number from given input that is divisible by 5.

```
i-e => Input is 73 so the number will be 75
```

2) Find the difference between actual input and the discovered.

```
i-e => 73 -75
```

3) If the difference between them is smaller than 3 then the

student will be awarded a discovered number as a grade else it

will remain the same as input

```
i-e
1) Input 73 - 75 = 2 //difference is less than 3 So, Grade
will be 75 here
2) Input 67 - 70 = 3 // difference is less than 3 So,
Grade will be 67 here
```

4) If input is 33 or less then simply return it no need for any

processing

Solution:

```
function gradingStudents(grades) {
let final = [];
for (let b = 0; b < grades.length; b++) {
let base = parseInt(grades[b]);
let val = parseInt(grades[b]);
if (base < 38) {
final.push(base);
} else {
for (let a = 0; a < 5; a++) {
if (val % 5 == 0) {
if (val - base < 3) {
final.push(val);
break;
} else {
final.push(base);
break;
}
} else {
val++;
}
}
}
}
return final
}
```

Hope you find this helpful or if there is any optimize method of solving this kindly recommend in a comment section.

Thanks.
