How to Run a Loop?

This is a nearly complete while loop, but something is missing. The loop should run 10 times, but it's not working at all. Can you fix it?

Bummer! The document.write() method was called 9 times. It should be called 10 times.

var counter = 1;
while ( counter < 10 ) {
    document.write("<p>Now in loop #" + counter + "</p>");
    counter += 1;

You're so close! You're missing a grand total of one character. It starts at one and will only run while counter is less than 10. So it will do it from 1 to 9 which means it does it 9 times... not 10. You can fix this by making the following change:

while ( counter <= 10)

That will make it run from one to 10... including 10 (so a total of 10 times). Happy coding!

Thank you for your help, Jennifer
