Dailyprogrammer challenge #197 - Validating ISBN Numbers

Hello again!

I now have a reddit account. You can find it here: https://www.reddit.com/user/starbeamrainbowlabs

I have attempted the latest Daily Programmer challenge.

This time I have written it in javascript. The challenge was to validate an ISBN-10 number. To validate an ISBN-10 number, you add 10 times the first number to 9 times the second number to 8 times the third number and so on. This total should leave no remainder when divided by 11. In addition, the letter X stands for a value of 10.

Here is my solution:

function validate_isbn(isbn) {
    var i = 10,
        tot = isbn.replace(/-/g, "").split("").reduce(function (total, char) {
            if (char.toLowerCase() == "x")
                total += i * 10;
            else
                total += i * parseInt(char);
            i--;
            return total;
        }, 0);

    if (tot % 11 === 0)
        return true;
    else
        return false;
}

I minified it by hand too:

function validate_isbn(a){var i = 10;if(a.replace(/-/g,"").split("").reduce(function(b, c){if(c.toLowerCase()=="x")b+=i*10;else b+=i* parseInt(c);i--;return b;},0)%11==0)return true;else return false;}

I should probably attempt the next challenge in C♯ so that I keep practising it.
