Can someone help me on this challenge?

It's an easy challenge if it were sequential, but the even numbers throws me off. I can't think of how I would simplify this.

script.js
console.log(2);
console.log(4);
console.log(6);
console.log(8);
console.log(10);
console.log(12);
console.log(14);
console.log(16);
console.log(18);
console.log(20);
console.log(22);
console.log(24);

Nevermind... I just figured it out. I would increase the counter by 2 every time instead of 1. sometimes the simple things seem so hard. If anyone has a better way or a different way I would love to hear it also. Thanks.

No that is the best way (from your comment). Sometimes you need to walk away from your project and take your mind off it, then when you come back you can get a fresh look at things!

for (var i = 2; i <= 24; i + 2) {
  console.log(i);
}
