To get started, the code challenge only wants you to create a map<T,U> function with a transformation parameter. Treehouse will test the map function by supplying different arguments to transformation, so you don't need to add a times4 function or call it in your map function.

thanks, got it

aaron du what was your final answer? I can't figure it out. This is my code...

func map<T, U>(array: [T], transformation: (T) -> U) -> U {
    return transformation(array)
