# Math squaring. hints dont even work

Tell us what’s happening:

i dont know how to solve this one

``````
const squareList = arr => {
// Only change code below this line
return arr.filter(num => num > 0 && num % parseInt(num)).map(num => Math.pow(num, 2));
// Only change code above this line
};

const squaredIntegers = squareList([-3, 4.8, 5, 3, -3.2]);
console.log(squaredIntegers);

` arr = arr.filter(number => number > 0 && Number.isInteger(number)).map(number => number * number)`

You’re almost there. Your test for whether the number is an integer is not quite right.

`num % parseInt(num)`

parseInt returns just the integer part of the number and then you are using the modulus operator with the original. What should the modulus operator return if both sides of the equation are the same? How would that return value work in an `if` statement?

Better to just give a hint and help them figure it out then to just give the answer.
