JavaScript JavaScript Array Iteration Methods Combining Array Methods Combining filter() and reduce()

These JavaScript problems are difficult. Can someone tell me what I'm wrong?

Thank you in advance

const purchaseItems = [
        name: 'apples',
        dept: 'groceries',
        price: 2.49
        name: 'bread',
        dept: 'groceries',
        price: 2.99
        name: 'batteries',
        dept: 'electronics',
        price: 5.80
        name: 'eggs',
        dept: 'groceries',
        price: 3.99
        name: 't-shirts',
        dept: 'apparel',
        price: 9.99
let groceryTotal;

// groceryTotal should be: 9.47
// Write your code below

groceryTotal = purchaseItems
    .filter(item => item.price > 10)
    .reduce((sum, price) => sum + item.price, 0);  

Nevermind I figured it out! Thanks

Congratulations on resolving your issue!

For the benefit of other students, there are two issues in the code:

  • the filter should select items in the grocery department instead of items with a price over 10
  • the second parameter of the function in "reduce" should be named "item" instead of "price"

Thanks Steve
