I’m confused about what to return and I don’t know where and how to position it.

What you did was calling the even function with nums as an argument.
That doesn’t make sense.


Step 1:

Add an even property to your spreadsheetFunctions.

To remind you, the syntax is some thing like this:

const obj = {
    property1: value1,
    property2: value2
}

Step 2:

It should take a nums parameter, and return the result of filtering the nums array to only include even numbers

You can look at the previous code as a reference.
For example:

nums => sum(nums) / nums.length

This is a function that take a nums parameter, and return the result of the expression: sum(nums) / nums.length.

To filtering an array, you can use filter() function.

Example on how to use filter():

Also, remember this hint in the instruction to use on your filter() function:

Use a reference to your isEven function to help.
