Maz Intermediate Algorithm Scripting: Sum All Odd Fibonacci Numbers

Tell us what’s happening:
I think I have chosen a wrong algorithm to solve the problem, but for me, it’s important to know where is the wrong part and why I passed some test cases and not passed others?

// running tests
sumFibs(1000) should return 1785.
sumFibs(75025) should return 135721.
// tests completed```

Your code so far

function sumFibs(num) {
let fibonacciSeq = [1, 1];
// when I should terminate for execution in order to get the correct sum in all cases?
for (let n = 0, fibonacciSeqSum = 0; fibonacciSeqSum <= num; n++) {
    fibonacciSeq[fibonacciSeq.length - 1] +
      fibonacciSeq[fibonacciSeq.length - 2]
  fibonacciSeqSum = fibonacciSeq.reduce((accumulator, currentValue) => {
    return accumulator + currentValue;
  }, 0);
let oddFibonacciSeqSum = fibonacciSeq
  .filter((element) => element % 2 !== 0)
  .reduce((accumulator, currentValue) => {
    return (accumulator <= num)? accumulator + currentValue : accumulator;
    //   return accumulator+currentValue;
  }, 0);
return oddFibonacciSeqSum;

Challenge: Sum All Odd Fibonacci Numbers

Link to the challenge:

Take another look at the challenge description. Your function is solving slightly different problem. num limit refers to the value of the single element of the sequence, not sum of elements.


Just as a side note - making a big long running array with all of the Fibonacci numbers and then iterating over it for odd ones will be very slow.
