totalValue function returns 0

I did this slightly differently by nesting the Arrays in an Object but the first function worked fine. However, when I run the code my second function just shows 0 in the console. Any ideas? I have pasted my code and the result I get in the console below.

Result in the console: [ 'cheese', 'milk' ]

Code: let products = { name: ["cheese", "milk"], inventory: [20, 10], unit_price: [10.0, 5.0] };

let listProducts = () => products.name; console.log(listProducts());

let totalValue = (prods) => { let inventory_value = 0; for (let i=0; i<prods.length; i+=1) { inventory_value += prods[i].inventory * prods[i].unit_price; } return inventory_value; } console.log(totalValue(products));

In the video, "projects" is an array of multiple objects. But in this code, "projects" is a single object containing attributes that are arrays.

This unconventional organization could be made to work, but the loop code would need to be significantly modified.
