I need a simple and efficient method to find the maximum 'y' value in this array of objects:

`[ { "x": "10/11/2021", "y": 0.019834729 }, { "x": "10/12/2021", "y": 0.021934728 }, { "x": "10/13/2021", "y": 0.018274834 }, { "x": "10/14/2021", "y": 0.022387492 } ] `

Can `Math.max`

be utilized here instead of a for-loop?

To find the maximum ‘y’ value in an array of objects efficiently, you can indeed use `Math.max`

along with `map`

to streamline the process. This avoids manual looping and ensures simplicity.

Here’s a quick and effective way to achieve this:

```
const data = [
{ "x": "10/11/2021", "y": 0.019834729 },
{ "x": "10/12/2021", "y": 0.021934728 },
{ "x": "10/13/2021", "y": 0.018274834 },
{ "x": "10/14/2021", "y": 0.022387492 }
];
const maxY = Math.max(...data.map(item => item.y));
console.log('Maximum y value is:', maxY);
```

This solution is straightforward:

- Use
`map`

to create an array of ‘y’ values.
- Apply
`Math.max`

with the spread operator to find the highest value.

The result is efficient and easy to maintain.
