can somebody tell me why my code is not working?
Remember that the .forEach() method allows you to run a callback function for each element in the array.

Use the .forEach() method to loop through the array. In the callback, use the el parameter to access the counts object and increment the count for each number.

could be a bug!! or still needs to be fixed!!

have a look at this topic and have a look at “jasborg” comment there…happy coding :slight_smile: Learn Advanced Array Methods by Building a Statistics Calculator - Step 27 - #7 by glovek08

hi

looks to me like it is .foreach you have three brackets instead off two thanks.

Ian

I have made mistakes like this before too every day is a school day.
