Your code so far

function sumFibs(num) {
let fib =[0,1];
for (let i = 2; i<= num; i++){
let f1 = fib[i-1];
let f2 = fib[i-2];
fib.push(f1+f2);
}
return fib
.filter(element => element % 2 != 0)
.reduce((a,b) => a+b);
}
sumFibs(1785);

Challenge: Intermediate Algorithm Scripting - Sum All Odd Fibonacci Numbers

Tell us what’s happening:
my code is not working for bigger numbers like 1785 …the output comes out to be infinity and also it passes test for some numbers but nor for every number and I cannot seem to figure out what is wrong with code. please help Your code so far

function sumFibs(num) {
let fib = [0, 1];
for (let i = 2; i <= num; i++) {
let f1 = fib[i - 1];
let f2 = fib[i - 2];
fib.push(f1 + f2)
}
return fib
.filter(element => element % 2 != 0)
.reduce((a, b) => a + b);
}
console.log(sumFibs(10));

Challenge: Intermediate Algorithm Scripting - Sum All Odd Fibonacci Numbers

You can make one modification to your code so that it will pass.

The issue is that i is an array index rather than a fibonacci value, so comparing i directly to num is incorrect logic:

You’ll be pushing values until the array index (rather than the value at that index) is greater than num.

Put console.log(fib) directly before your return statement, to see the results.

If you change the stopping condition so that it checks that the next value to be pushed (i.e. the sum of the two values at the end of your array) will be <=num, your array will be correct.

You need to stop when the most recent Fibonacci number you created is bigger than or equal to the num. What might that look like? What does ‘bigger than or equal to num’ look like? How do you access your biggest Fibonacci number in your array?

i<=num is the condition which determines when your loop will stop. As it stands, the loop will stop when the number of items in your array exceeds num, which is not what you’re trying to do.

Instead, you should change this so that the loop stops pushing numbers when the next term in the fibonacci sequence would exceed num. You can determine the next term in the sequence by adding together the two values at the end of the array. So with each iteration of the loop that condition should check what the next term would be and that it is <=num.
