do..while loop

I needed to print the following to the console






etc. but couldn't finish it. What am I missing? Here is the code.

var x = 1; do { console.log('#' + 1); x += 1; } while ( x <= 15 )

Immanuel Jaeggi ,

You were pretty close so don't worry, just had few minor mistakes that anyone could of made. The answer to the quiz is follows (I'll detail why it works after).


var x = 1;
do {
  console.log('#' + x);
  x += 2; 
} while ( x <= 15 )

The question requires you to :

  • Store a counter in a variable named x
  • Log the value of #x e.g. (#1, #3) to the console.
  • Increment x by 2 to only displayed odd numbers.
var x = 1; // counter
do {
  console.log('#' + x); // display the incremental counter
  x += 2; // increment by 2
} while ( x <= 15 )

Got it... simply jumping 2 numbers to show odd numbers only. A real help thanks!
