The problem

[1, 2, 3].map(x => x + 1).filter(x => x > 3)
[1, 2, 3].reduce((a, x) => { 
let y = x + 1;
return y > 3 ? a.concat(y) : a}, [])


A function is originally the idealization of how a varying quantity depends on another quantity. For example, the position of a planet is a function of the time.

const square = (x) => x ** 2;
