The challenge is expecting to see every number in the range, but the increment expression "i += 5" will show only every fifth value and skip all the rest. You'll need to increment by 1 to get every value.

A few more hints:

  • there should be no semicolon after the increment expression
  • the "log" function must be done inside the loop
  • the variable "i" holds the loop index and should be logged
  • you won't need the variable "number"
