Sum All Odd Fibonacci Numbers -HELP!

Why is it summing 10 digits instead of summing til num 10. I am getting 99 instead of 10 !
Please help!
Here is my code:

function sumFibs(num) {
  var fib=[1,1];
  for(var i=2; i<num; i++){
    var nextNumber=fib[i-1]+fib[i-2]
      var fibi=fib.push(nextNumber)
    return fib.filter(function(a){
    return (a %2 !=0);
    return a+b;
  return fib;
  console.log(sumFibs(10));  // 99

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 easier to read.

See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard. The “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) will also add backticks around text.

Note: Backticks are not single quotes.


I´ll do, thank you. ‘’’ :wink: ‘’’

Before the function’s return statement, fib looks like:

[ 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55 ]

Then, after you filter it, you are left with an array which looks like:

[ 1, 1, 3, 5, 13, 21, 55 ]

which then you reduce to 99.

The reduce method will still iterate over the 7 elements present in the array filter returns, so you are just summing those 7 numbers.

You can modify your filter to only include values less than 10 while also checking for the odd numbers. This way, your reduce will only iterate and sum the following numbers:

[ 1, 1, 3, 5 ] // sum is 10

Thank you for your answer. Sorry i am very new( 2 months) to coding and maybe too old to start
I know where from 99 is coming, just can’ t do it correctly…
thought ‘’’(i < num)’’’ is doing it, but was wrong.

Why would you use i < num inside the filter’s callback function? There is no variable named i in it. There is another variable you could use though.
