re: My solution in js const riders = (stations = []) => { let numOfRiders = + !!stations.reduce((acc, distance) => acc + distance, 0), totalD...

Nice your solution is a little bit on an expert level here my JS solution

``````function riders(stations) {
// check if stations is defined
if(stations) {
let distanceRode = 0
let numberOfRiders = 0

stations.forEach(distance => {
distanceRode += distance
});

//Check if there is anything passed within the array
if(distanceRode == 0)
return 0

//modulus division
let i = distanceRode%100

//check if distance is greater than 100
if (distanceRode >= 100) {
if(i == 0) {
/*
if distance is greater than 100
and modulus division is 0 then simply divide by
100 to get distance rode
*/
numberOfRiders = distanceRode/100
} else {
/*
if distance is greater than 100
and modulus division is not 0 then simply divide by
100 to get number of riders and set the remainder as an extra rider
*/
numberOfRiders = Math.floor(distanceRode/100) + 1
}
}
return numberOfRiders
} else {
return 0
}
}

console.log(riders()); // 0
console.log(riders([])); // 0
console.log(riders([0, 0, 0, 0, 0])); // 0
console.log(riders([43,23,40,13])) //2
console.log(riders([34,56,12,67,23,90,56])) //4
console.log(riders([56,67,100,345,12,45])) //7
console.log(riders([100, 100, 100, 50, 50, 30, 20, 25, 25, 25, 25])); //6

``````

Good approach. Taking the total and dividing by 100 to see how many riders.
