We have an array of numbers like this −

const arr = [1, 1, 5, 2, -4, 6, 10];

We are required to write a function that returns a new array, of the same size but with each element being the sum of all elements until that point.

Therefore, the output should look like −

const output = [1, 2, 7, 9, 5, 11, 21];

Therefore, let’s write the function partialSum(),

The full code for this function will be −

const arr = [1, 1, 5, 2, -4, 6, 10];
const partialSum = (arr) => {
const output = [];
arr.forEach((num, index) => {

if(index === 0){
output[index] = num;
}else{
output[index] = num + output[index - 1];
}
});
return output;
};
console.log(partialSum(arr));

Here, we iterated over the array and kept assigning the elements of output array a new value every time, the value being the sum of current number and its predecessor.

The output of the code in the console will be −

[
1, 2, 7, 9,
5, 11, 21
]
