I have a problem with javascript for loops challenge

I am having a problem getting this challenge to pass, what am i doing wrong?

var number = ' ';

for ( var i = 4; i <= 156; i += 1 ) {
  number += i;

You have to log every number from 4 to 156.Here you are adding numbers like 4+5+6.... to your number variable. You just have to output the numbers. That can be done simply by

for (var i = 4; i <= 156; i++) {

And one more thing your number variable is a empty string not a number. You just declare a number by

var var_name = your_number;
//or declare the variable and assign it afterwards
var number;
number = 1;

thank you for that. one day I will understand javascript.

Yes. You have to keep practicing and never stop learning. Good luck!
