I keep getting an invalid left-hand side in assignments what am I doing wrong

Pretty new to java script help would be much appreciated. Thank you

app.js
const numbers = [1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10];
let times10 = [];
numbers.forEach(number => {
  times10 * 10= number
});
console.log(times10);

// times10 should be: [10,20,30,40,50,60,70,80,90,100]
// Write your code below

In an assignment, the calculations must be done on the right side.

But you also don't want to just assign a single value to "times10". So instead of an assignment, you might want to use a method that adds a new item onto the array. The "push" method is good for this.

Thanks for the help, finally got it.
