The do while loop runs once meaning you would need to iterate over the loop 9 more times to to console.log a total of 10 times.

X is whatever you want it to be.

The code in the block will run ONCE because it is a do while loop, if you were to put a specific number in the blank, the loop would be repeated until the condition is no longer true.
