    return Some(numerator / denominator);
  }
};

// The return value of the function is an option
const result = divide(2.0, 3.0);

// Pattern match to retrieve the value
const message = result.match({
  some: res => `Result: ${res}`,
  none: 'Cannot divide by 0',
});

console.log(message); // "Result: 0.6666666666666666"

  switch (index) {
    case -1:
      return Err('Value not found');
    default:
      return Ok(index);
