I’ve tried to approach this challange with binary search alghoritm, but then I realised when the egg breaks on 50th floor we have 49 more possible floors, so I needed some other way around.
So after some reading on the net, because I wasn’t quite sure how to do it, I’ve managed to write this simple solution for this challange: explanation

function eggDrop(n, d = 1){ // Write your code here if (n <= 0) { return d-1; } else if (n => 1) { return eggDrop(n-d, ++d); } } console.log(eggDrop(2)); // Leave this here so we can test your code module.exports = eggDrop;

For 2 eggs.

function eggDrop(n){
  return Math.round(Math.sqrt(n / 2) * 2);
