Possible hide first two output value

hello guys i just want to ask if possible to hide the first two false output values before getting the true value Here's my code let people = [ {name:'john'}, {name:'smith'}, {name:'jerry'}, {name:'peter'}, {name:'justine'}, {name:'rain'} ]; for (let i = 0; i <= people.length; i++) { if(people[i].name === 'jerry'){ console.log('jerry'); } else { console.log('false'); } } This is the output: false, false, jerry, false, false, false But my desire output: jerry, false, false, false Thank you in advance!

You can achieve it by using a helper variable: let people = [ {name:'john'}, {name:'smith'}, {name:'jerry'}, {name:'peter'}, {name:'justine'}, {name:'rain'} ]; let isDesiredNameFound = false; for (let i = 0; i < people.length; i++) { if(people[i].name === 'jerry'){ console.log('jerry'); isDesiredNameFound = true; } else if(isDesiredNameFound) { console.log('false'); } } https://code.sololearn.com/WE7I4QlpFrHa/?ref=app Notice that i changed the for loop from i <= people.length; to i < people.length; It will crash with both, the less than & the equal to.
