Tell us what’s happening:

Your code so far

var arr = [];
function sumFibs(num,a=0,b=1) {
if(a%2 === 1){ 
if(b <= num){       
return (a===0) ? arr.reduce((acc,cVal) => acc+cVal) : b;

FreeCodeCamp’s test suite is rejecting this code because your function relies upon a global variable, which means you can’t run your function multiple times.

Your code contains global variables that are changed each time the function is run. This means that after each test completes, subsequent tests start with the previous value. To fix this, make sure your function doesn’t change any global variables, and declare/assign variables within the function if they need to be changed.


var myGlobal = [1];
function returnGlobal(arg) {
  return myGlobal;
} // unreliable - array gets longer each time the function is run

function returnLocal(arg) {
  var myLocal = [1];
  return myLocal;
} // reliable - always returns an array of length 2
