Tell us what’s happening:

Describe your issue in detail here.

this is for the getVariance function:
so i got this message: Sorry, your code does not pass. Try again.

Your reduce callback should be an empty function.

but at the same time the reduce method should return a callback function, but the body has to be empty, doesn’t make sense

Your code so far

Im sorry I’ve edited, it’s on the getVariance function

  • you’re supposed to pass in “empty” callback
  • now look into this “concept” of how you would pass in an “empty callback” into a function and try again

happy coding :slight_smile:
