canBalance challenge

Last Modified: 2016-08-19

I am working on below challenge


I have not understood the description properly

Given a non-empty array, return true if there is a place to split the array so that the sum of the numbers on one side is equal to the sum of the numbers on the other side.

canBalance([1, 1, 1, 2, 1]) → true//i thought since 1+1 is not equal to 2+1 it should be false?
canBalance([2, 1, 1, 2, 1]) → false//i thought since 2+1 is equal to 2+1 it should be true??
canBalance([10, 10]) → true

please advise
