Functional Programming - Implement map on a Prototype

Tell us what’s happening:

Just so I understand what is going on, on the first line when we pass “callback” as an argument, the “callback” is a function itself correct? Also, on the next line (line 5) containing “callback(element, index, originalArr)” I do not understand the use of callback, like what is the logic behind that? What is the callback function actually doing?

Your code so far

Array.prototype.myMap = function(callback) {
  const newArray = [];
  // Only change code below this line
  this.forEach((element, index, originalArr) =>
    newArray.push(callback(element, index, originalArr))
  );
  // Only change code above this line
  return newArray;
};

It depends on what callback function is used, but the purpose of the callback is to create new array elements out of the old elements here.
