function isBigEnough(element, index, array) {
  return element >= 10;
[12, 5, 8, 130, 44].every(isBigEnough);   // false
[12, 54, 18, 130, 44].every(isBigEnough); // true
function checkAdult(age) {
    return age >= 18;

const ageArray = [34, 23, 20, 26, 12];
let check = ageArray.every(checkAdult); // false
