Filter out an array based on object properties

   
    var inventors = [
      { first: 'Albert', last: 'Einstein', year: 1879, passed: 1955 },
      { first: 'Isaac', last: 'Newton', year: 1643, passed: 1727 },

    ];

    // Array.prototype.filter()
    // 1. Filter the list of inventors for those who were born in the 1500's
    // if it returns true you keep it otherwise it will drop it
      var fifteen = inventors.filter(function(inventor){
      if(inventor.year >= 1500 && inventor.year < 1600){
        return true;//keep it
      }
    });
    
//refactored es6 style:
//take the inventors the arrow function returns true on just like above
    const fifteen = inventors.filter(inventor => inventor.year >= 1500 && inventor.year < 1600);
