# Native: Array

A collection of useful methods to extend Arrays.

## Array Method: min

Calls Math.min on the array and returns its lowest value.

### Syntax

```myArray.min();
```

### Example

```[1, 2, 3].min();
//returns 1
```

### Returns

• (number) the lowest number in the array

## Array Method: max

Calls Math.max on the array and returns its highest value.

### Syntax

```myArray.max();
```

### Example

```[1, 2, 3].max();
//returns 3
```

### Returns

• (number) the highest number in the array

## Array Method: average

Calculates the average value of the array.

### Syntax

```myArray.average();
```

### Example

```[1, 2, 3].average();
//returns 2
```

### Returns

• (number) the average value of the array

## Array Method: shuffle

Randomizes the array (altering it).

### Syntax

```myArray.shuffle();
```

### Example

```[1, 2, 3].shuffle();
```

### Returns

• (array) the array.

### Note

Calling this method alters the array; it doesn't just return a new array with the same contents shuffled. It does, however, return itself.

## Array Method: sum

Sums up all values in an array.

### Syntax

```myArray.sum();
```

### Example

```\$\$('ul.menu li').getWidth().sum();
//returns the width of all li elements inside ul.menu as a sum
```

### Returns

• (number) a number containing the sum of all values in the given array

## Array Method: unique

Returns a new array without duplicate values.

### Syntax

```myArrayWithoutDupes = myArray.unique();
```

### Example

```var fruits = ['apple', 'lemon', 'pear', 'lemon', 'apple'].unique();
//fruits == ['apple', 'lemon', 'pear']
```

### Returns

• (array) a new array without duplicates.
