It looks like you have two minor issues. Good news is that it looks like you have the important programming aspects correct!

The MDN page for for loops is a great reference for syntax. You'll always want to carefully read the description of the challenge tasks, they are normally looking for very specific output (100 vs 500).

// syntax: replace , with ;
for(counter = 5, counter < 501, counter++){ // stop at 100, not 500
  console.log(counter);
}

That should be it, super painless! Nice work, and happy coding!

I got help from oakland thanks though
