Why initiate the result array to all 1s?

I don’t think we need to do this, all default values works the same as they will be overwritten anyway.

Hi @jack1 ,

In response to your question, you are correct! We do not need to initialize the array elements with 1 value as the temp variable is already fulfilling that purpose. The temp variable is initialized zero as well. Thank you for pointing out this redundant code. I have updated the lesson and fixed this issue.
