Tell us what’s happening:
Describe your issue in detail here.

  **Your code so far**

const stats = {
max: 56.78,
standard_deviation: 4.34,
median: 34.54,
mode: 23.87,
min: -0.75,
average: 35.85

// Only change code below this line
//const half = (stats) => (stats.max + stats.min) / 2.0; 
const half = ({max, min})=> (max+min)/2.0;
Destructured parameter should be used.    what is this error please explain.

you’re code looks like it should work so likely an issue with the test

Right. The test is probably reading the comment. That’s why I asked them to try deleting it.

Jeremy is right. Just to expand and explain…

This is the test that is failing:


It is confirming that you didn’t use dot notation. It assumes that if you have dot notation in your solution that you may not have used destructuring. At the moment, it doesn’t distinguish between live code and comments.

If I remove that comment, the code passes.
