Initial Code
var array1:Array = new Array(1,2,3,4,5,6,7);
var array2:Array = new Array(1,2,3,9,5,6,7);

function checkIfArraysMatch($arrayA:Array, $arrayB:Array):Boolean 
	var isMatch:Boolean = true;
	if($arrayA.length == $arrayB.length) {
		for (var i:int = 0; i<$arrayA.length; i++) {
			if ($arrayA[i] != $arrayB[i]) {
				isMatch = false;
	} else {
		isMatch = false;
	return isMatch;

trace(checkIfArraysMatch(array1, array2));

// OUTPUT: false
