JavaScript JavaScript Loops Working with 'for' Loops Create a for Loop

Create a for loop that logs the numbers 5 to 100 to the console. Use the console.log() method to log a value to the cons

function getRandomNumber(upper) {
  return Math.floor( Math.random() * upper ) + 1;

  for (let i = 5; i <=100; i++); {

There's a stray semicolon between the for clauses and the opening brace of the code block, causing a syntax error. Remove that and you'll pass the challenge.

But while it's not affecting the challenge, the most curious thing here is the presence of the getRandomNumber function, which isn't related to the challenge at all!   :see_no_evil:

Thank you. Removed the semi-colon and it did indeed pass the challenge.
