Your loop will print out 'I love JavaScript' 11 times, not 10.

You see, because your counter starts at 0, and it goes up to or equal to 10, your loop will actually run 11 times.

Looks like its just a syntax error. At the end of your code you don't need the braces "} {" at the end of your code. Other than that its perfect.

var x = 0;

do {
   console.log('I love javascript');
   x = x + 1
} while (x < 10)
