I don't understand how a prototype function (1) returns a array and then that array is iterated to the argument of the function (1)?

Tell us what’s happening:
Describe your issue in detail here.
The ’ Mymap ’ function takes a function as argument. Then it returns a array.
The part I don’t understand is How the array returned by Mymap function is iterated into the function that was the argument of the Mymap function ???

  **Your code so far**

// The global Array
var s = [23, 65, 98, 5];

Array.prototype.myMap = function(callback) {
var newArray = [];

// Add your code below this line
for (let i = 0; i < this.length; i++) {
// Add your code above this line

return newArray;

var new_s = s.myMap(function(item) {
return item * 2;

Challenge: Implement map on a Prototype

Link to the challenge:

Look at what the myMap function is doing in the for loop:


It is calling the callback function for each element in the array. So the function you passed into myMap is being applied to every element in the array.
