Learn Functional Programming by Building a Spreadsheet - Step 87

Tell us what’s happening:

I genuinely don’t know what I’m supposed to do here. Obviously I’m doing something wrong. Here are the instructions: “Your apply function is returning the spreadsheet function, but not actually applying it. Update apply to call the function. Pass in the result of calling toNumberList with args as an argument. " I don’t even understand what the problem is. I added {} and “return” to see if that would work. It didn’t. Error message reads, " Your apply function should call the spreadsheetFunctions[fn.toLowerCase()] function.” EDIT: I realized I’m supposed to add toNumberList(args) but I’m not adding it the right way. Console error reads: // running tests Your apply function should call the spreadsheetFunctions[fn.toLowerCase()] function. You should pass a toNumberList() call to your spreadsheetFunctions[fn.toLowerCase()] call. You should pass args to your toNumberList() call. // tests completed

calling a function means you add the round parenthesis to the right of the function name () and add eventual arguments between those. You did not do this
