Use the filter Method to Extract Data from an Array help

Can someone help me with passing the final test, I have noticed the result doesnt have quotation marks at the appropriate places, as well as the fact that my 9 is not displayed as a float e.g 9.0.

Any ideas how to fix this? I looked at the solution and saw there were a lot of returns in the code, is this where I am going wrong?

Your code so far

Challenge: Use the filter Method to Extract Data from an Array

Link to the challenge:

We need to see your code to be able to help.

so sorry, I have edited it now.

You are converting the ratings to numbers, but you should not do that. You should only use a conversion to a number inside of the filter check.

Side note: the rule of thumb is to filter before map

Ah thank you, I got it now. However this part of the challenge confused me : Note that the rating values are saved as strings in the object and you may need to convert them into numbers to perform mathematical operations on them.

Also Do you mind elaborating on this?

A filter makes your array smaller, so if you are going to do multiple array methods on the same array, it is best to start with the filter so that the later methods have less work to do.
