How to ensure that I provide the while loop with a condition that will eventually terminate?

I am really confused with this part of the code challenge.

This was the actual question: In this task, we have an array of numbers and we want to compute the sum of its values.

We have a variable ,sum, that will store the value of the sum of numbers from the array.

We also have a variable ,counter, which we will use to track the number of iterations of the while loop.

Step 1: Create a while loop. The while loop should continue as long as the value of counter is less than the number of items in the array. (Hint: You can get that number by using the count property)

loops.swift
let numbers = [2,8,1,16,4,3,9]
var sum = 0
var counter = 0

// Enter your code below
while counter < sum.count {
    counter += 1 
}

Your loop should run as long as there are values in the numbers array to calculate so you should count the numbers array, you have set a count on the sum variable. Sum is of type Int and it doesn't have a count property. Hope this helps
