Your loop condition says to run while "i" is not 0, but nothing in the body of the loop changes the value of "i". So the loop will just run forever.

But you'll also need to make a few other changes. To meet the challenge requirements, you need to start with something other than 12 (24/2). Hint: this might be a good place for a "for" loop.
