Check the comparison (the 2nd clause of the "for"). The test needs to be "true" while the loop runs.

Since "I" starts as 4, then the current test for "greater or equal to 156" is false so the loop never runs.

I was having the same issue. Turns out I'd also mixed up the less than symbol with the greater than symbol (which happens a lot!).

Thanks for the hint, Steven!
