Tap your functions into method chains for near-seamless interoperability.
Functions give us flexibility about granularity and locality, but they can be awkward to compose with an value's methods.
tap makes using functions & methods together idiomatic, natural, and very easy to read. See here for a fuller discussion.

This is equivalent to:
var averageAge = Mathroundpeoplemap return page reduceadd / peoplelength
.tap method into any number of objects. If the environment supports es5, then the property will be set to non-enumerable.

.tap method calls a function, using the context of the method as the first argument:
var return v + 1num = 5numtapinc//= 6
.tap also takes optional secondary arguments:
var return a / bnum = 10numtapdivide 2//= 5
