JavaScript JavaScript Array Iteration Methods Combining Array Methods Working with Objects

I don't understand why this challenge isn't accepting my code... I copied it into the workspace and it seemed to work...

const authors = [ { firstName: "Beatrix", lastName: "Potter" }, { firstName: "Ann", lastName: "Martin" }, { firstName: "Beverly", lastName: "Cleary" }, { firstName: "Roald", lastName: "Dahl" }, { firstName: "Lewis", lastName: "Carroll" } ]; let fullAuthorNames;

// fullAuthorNames should be: ["Beatrix Potter", "Ann Martin", "Beverly Cleary", "Roald Dahl", "Lewis Carroll"] // Write your code below

fullAuthorsNames = authors.map(author => ${author.firstName} ${author.lastName});

app.js
const authors = [
  { firstName: "Beatrix", lastName: "Potter" },
  { firstName: "Ann", lastName: "Martin" },
  { firstName: "Beverly", lastName: "Cleary" },
  { firstName: "Roald", lastName: "Dahl" },
  { firstName: "Lewis", lastName: "Carroll" }
];
let fullAuthorNames;

// fullAuthorNames should be: ["Beatrix Potter", "Ann Martin", "Beverly Cleary", "Roald Dahl", "Lewis Carroll"]
// Write your code below

fullAuthorsNames = authors.map(author => `${author.firstName} ${author.lastName}`);

You just have a typo/spelling issue.

The challenge is expecting to result in the variable "fullAuthorNames" (with one "s"), but your code is assigning a variable "fullAuthorsNames" (with two "s" characters).

Doh!! Thanks Steven :)
