Create a FOR loop that displays each number from 1 to 100. Make sure that you DO NOT show 0 and you DO show 100.

It keep saying Bummer! Make sure you display each number from 1 to 100

index.php
<?php
$facts = array(
    57 => ' on Heinz ketchup bottles represents the number of varieties of pickles the company once had.',
    2 => ' is the approximate hours a day Giraffes sleeps',
    18 => ' is the average hours a Python sleeps per day',
    10 => ' per cent of the world is left-handed.',
    11 => ' Empire State Buildings, stacked one on top of the other, would be required to measure the Gulf of Mexico at its deepest point.',
    98 => '% of the atoms in your body are replaced every year',
    69 => ' is the largest number of recorded children born to one woman',
);
//add your loop below this line

for($facts; $facts<=100; $facts++){
  echo [$facts] . "<br />\n";
}

1) the first challenge is to print numbers from 1 to 100
2) when you've been asked to create a for loop, you should use a different variable
than the existing one, you have used $facts, for eg $i
3) when you echo, you should echo the $i, and you should not use square brackets
<?php
for($i; $i<=100; $i++){
  echo $i . "<br />\n";
}
?>

When you ask this question, you should not present the array values. That area should be empty.

This is really so frustrating..I was trying to figure that out but could not. I was trying to understand the relevance with the array structure. I was thinking the key numbers. Did the challenge ask for adding an additional number like a pair but in this case 0 here cannot be the the keys. Then I thought 0 here is the order of the array you know it starts with the 0 and I was thinking to use iteration before 'in the second expression' but in this case what the hell was 100. :)

Whoever created these challenges please do not confuse us. For the first task you should delete arrays. A mind is looking for the relevance and it is really painful. :)

Other than the lessons are great. Good job.
