..Copy an Array with the Spread Operator

Tell us what’s happening:

can anyone please tell me what’s wrong with my code and point me in the right direction ?

Your code so far

function copyMachine(arr, num) {
  let newArr = [];
  while (num >= 1) {
    // change code below this line
    newArr = [...arr] * num ;
    // change code above this line
  return newArr;

// change code here to test different cases:
console.log(copyMachine([true, false, true], 2));

Link to the challenge:

* is for numbers, you can’t multiply something that isn’t a number. What you’re doing here doesn’t really make sense.

If you use what you have: [...arr] is indeed going to create a new copy of arr. But you are supposed to putting n copies of arr into another array, so you need to initialise that other array, on each iteration of the loop put a copy of arr into it, then return the now-full array once you’re finished
