Arrays: Filling an array

You can initialize a new array with a set of values using this syntax, which first initializes an array of 12 elements, and fills each element with the number 0:

const b = Array(12).fill(0)

const b = Array() is another way to define an array, which is equivalent to using the array literal syntax const b = []

const b = Array()

//same as

const b = []

b is now an array of 12 items that all have the value 0.
