I get an error the console should show 5 the first time run. When I enter this code in a workspace it works perfectly.

script.js
for ( let i = 5; i <= 100; i++ ) {
  console.log( `${i}` );
}

OK Alice,

Here’s the issue with your code (and why you’re not passing the challenge). You’re placing your i variable inside a template literal, which is changing your int type into a string type. And so although 5, 6, 7, ... 100 is printed to the console, they aren’t integers that are being printed, but strings.

Change your statement from

console.log(`${i}`)
//to 
console.log(i)

and you’ll be all set.

Thank you!
