My fancy name is Higher Order Function!

They label me from higher order, but I don't forget my roots, I am still a function that simply operates on other functions!

Functions that operate on other functions, either by taking them as arguments or by returning them, are called higher-order functions.

Show me something

function getMeAMultiplierFunction(multiplyBy) {
  return function multiply(multiplyWith) {
    return multiplyBy * multiplyWith;

const multiplyBy2 =  getMeAMultiplierFunction(2);
const multiplyBy5 =  getMeAMultiplierFunction(5);
multiplyBy2(5); // 10
multiplyBy5(5); // 25

// Higher Order Universe
function letMeCheckItForYou(value, checkerFunc) {
 // People call me to check if some value meets THEIR requirements
 // I reply them yes or no (true/ false)
 // They call me higher order
 const yesOrNo =  checkerFunc(value);
 return yesOrNo;

// People Universe
// I am Sam, I like numbers greater than 10
