Rest parametr help pls

const product = (n1, n2, n3) => {
  const args = [n1, n2, n3];
  return args.reduce((a, b) => a * b, 1);
console.log(product(2, 4, 6)); //48

I cant understand one simple thing. The end of the 3rd string. What this 1 is doing here?

the reduce method can take a second argument, and that would be the starting value of the accumulator

read here to learn more about the reduce method:

I’ve edited your post for readability. When you enter a code block into a forum post, please precede it with a separate line of three backticks and follow it with a separate line of three backticks to make it easier to read.

You can also use the “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) to add backticks around text.

See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard.
Note: Backticks (`) are not single quotes (’).
