create a for loop that logs the number 4 to 156 to the console

to log the value to the console use the console.log method

script.js
var html = "";

for( var i = 4; i < 156; i +=1); {
console.log ()
}

You're nearly there! In the for loop, you wrote "i < 156". This means that when i hits 156, it makes the condition false, which means it breaks out of the loop before you can log 156. Because of this, you need to replace that code with "i < 157" or "1 <= 156".

You also need to get rid of the semi-colon after the closing parentheses, remove the space between "console.log" and "()", put a semi-colon after that line, and put i inside the log.

// CHANGE i < 156 SO THAT THE CONDITION INCLUDES 156
// REMOVE SEMI-COLON AFTER CLOSE PARENTHESES
for( var i = 4; i < 156; i +=1); {
// REMOVE SPACE AFTER console.log
// PUT SEMI-COLON AT END OF console.log()
// PUT i INSIDE PARENTHESES
console.log ()
}

I hope this helps!

Alright.

// CHANGE i < 156 SO THAT THE CONDITION INCLUDES 156
// REMOVE SEMI-COLON AFTER CLOSE PARENTHESES
for( var i = 4; i < 157; i +=1) { // could also change condition to i <= 156
// REMOVE SPACE AFTER console.log
// PUT SEMI-COLON AT END OF console.log()
// PUT i INSIDE PARENTHESES
console.log(i);
}
