Error help


hi I am receiving the error home/ccuser/workspace/learn-javascript-classes-build-a-library/app.js:30
let ratingsSum = this.ratings.reduce((currentSum,rating) => currentSum + rating, 0);

TypeError: this.ratings.reduce is not a function

this._ratings = average;

(from getAverageRating method), you set ratings to a integer. so when you call the method twice, the second time, this. ratings will be an integer, integers do not have a reduce method, that is only for array


cool so removing the line of code cleared the error


But do you also understand why?
