Please help, my code is not working, unexpected token...

Using reduce method, flatten the customerNames array of arrays. In other words, take all the names from each array inside customerNames and place them in one big array. Store the flattened array in the flattenedCustomerNames variable. You can use the array in the comments below for reference.

app.js
const customerNames = [
    [ "John", "Sandy", "Tyrone", "Elizabeth", "Penny" ],
    [ "Barry", "Wanda", "Jamal", "Hayden" ],
    [ "Portia", "Pam", "Philip" ]
];
let flattenedCustomerNames;

// flattenedCustomerNames should be: ["John", "Sandy", "Tyrone", "Elizabeth", "Penny", "Barry", "Wanda", "Jamal", "Hayden", "Portia", "Pam", "Philip"]
// Write your code below

flattenedCustomerNames = customerNames.reduce((total, name) => [...total, ...name), []);

Clearly, you were attempting the correct way to code it to pass.

I hope that helps.

Stay safe and happy coding!
