# Convert 45 to 1 and 345 to 2 [closed]

I’m building a carousel with a swiping limit exceeding both left and right of 45px on each item has 300px width I wonder How to convert 45 to 1 index and 345 to 2 index. I have a total of 3 items for the carousel.

I have the following formula for converting it to 2 indexes however not on the first index

If the current position is on 100px which is greater than 45 it should still result 1 index

(345 / 345 * 2) a result of 2

(45 / 345 * 2) a result of 0.2608695652173913

I’m trying to make that one line

```  let move = current_translate - previous_translate_item;

if (move < -345) current_index += 1;
if (move < -40) current_index += 1;
if (move > 40) current_index -= 1;
if (move > 345) current_index -= 1;
```

Carousel for mobile screens

Try using this one:

```let val_converter = val => -Math.sign(val)*Math.floor((Math.abs(val)-40)/300 +1);

console.log(val_converter(-645));   //  3
console.log(val_converter(-644));   //  2
console.log(val_converter(-345));   //  2
console.log(val_converter(-344));   //  1
console.log(val_converter(- 40));   //  1
console.log(val_converter(- 39));   //  0
console.log(val_converter(   0));   //  0
console.log(val_converter(  39));   //  0
console.log(val_converter(  40));   // -1
console.log(val_converter( 344));   // -1
console.log(val_converter( 345));   // -2
console.log(val_converter( 644));   // -2
console.log(val_converter( 645));   // -3
```

In your specific source code, it would be something like this:

```let val_converter = val => -Math.sign(val)*Math.floor((Math.abs(val)-40)/300+1);

let move = current_translate - previous_translate_item;

current_index += val_converter(move);
```
