# JavaScript: Apply a function against an accumulator and each element in the array (from left to right), returning an array of successively reduced values

## JavaScript: Exercise-156 with Solution

Write a JavaScript program to apply a function against an accumulator and each element in the array (from left to right), returning an array of successively reduced values.

• Use Array.prototype.reduce() to apply the given function to the given array, storing each new result.

Sample Solution:

JavaScript Code:

``````//#Source https://bit.ly/2neWfJ2
// Define a function 'reduceSuccessive' that applies a binary function to the elements of an array
// Successively reduce the array using the provided binary function and an initial accumulator value
const reduceSuccessive = (arr, fn, acc) =>
// Use the 'reduce' method on the array
arr.reduce(
// For each element of the array, push the result of applying the binary function to the accumulator and the current value
// into the result array
(res, val, i, arr) => (res.push(fn(res.slice(-1)[0], val, i, arr)), res),
// Initialize the result array with the provided accumulator value
[acc]
);

// Test the 'reduceSuccessive' function with an array, a binary function, and an initial accumulator value
console.log(reduceSuccessive([1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6], (acc, val) => acc + val, 0)); // Output: [0, 1, 3, 6, 10, 15, 21]
```
```

Output:

```[0,1,3,6,10,15,21]
```
