how to randomize an array


const getShuffledArr = arr => {
const newArr = arr.slice()
for (let i = newArr.length - 1; i > 0; i--) {
const rand = Math.floor(Math.random() * (i + 1));
[newArr[i], newArr[rand]] = [newArr[rand], newArr[i]];
}
return newArr
};

function randomArrayShuffle(array) {
var currentIndex = array.length, temporaryValue, randomIndex;
while (0 !== currentIndex) {
randomIndex = Math.floor(Math.random() * currentIndex);
currentIndex -= 1;
temporaryValue = array[currentIndex];
array[currentIndex] = array[randomIndex];
array[randomIndex] = temporaryValue;
}
return array;
}
var alphabet=["a","b","c","d","e"];
randomArrayShuffle(alphabet);
//alphabet is now shuffled randomly = ["d", "c", "b", "e", "a"]
