Array reduce Javascript.

Example to show on how to use Array reduce to make a average of an array.

First an example on how to do it with a for loop.

var scores=[20, 34, 55, 46, 77];

var sum=0;
for(var i = 0; i < scores.length; i++) {
sum +=scores[i];
sum = sum / scores.length;

And now with the reduce function provided by Array prototype, the sintax is:

array.reduce(callback(accumulator, currentval, index, allarray))

var sum = scores.reduce(function(accum, cur, index, array) {
return accum+cur;

sum = sum / scores.length;
