Why do we need filter to make things more complicated if reduce does the job by itself?

const pricesOver10 = products.reduce((pricesAll,price) => {if(price.price > 10){pricesAll += price.price}return pricesAll},0).toFixed(2)

Reduce adds up the sum, filter replaces your 'if' statement. My syntax might be not be perfect, but this is the idea.

const pricesOver10 = products.filter(price.price > 10).reduce((pricesAll,price) => pricesAll += price.price, 0).toFixed(2)

You might not have used the .filter method, but you've recreated its functionality in your conditional code. While this is a technically legitimate solution, it's less compact than the video example and requires about 50% more space.
