# I think my solution is correct for this question, how do I pass to the next section without penalty?

Here is my solution, but it says that I am incorrect...

def repeat(string, times) fail "times must be 1 or more" if times < 1 counter = 0 string = "hi" times = 5

loop do if counter == times break else puts string counter += 1 end
end end

loop.rb
```def repeat(string, times)
fail "times must be 1 or more" if times < 1
counter = 0
string = "hi"
times = 5

loop do
if counter == times
break
else
puts string
counter += 1
end
end
end
```

Your loop code is actually good!

But you added some extra stuff above where the "# YOUR CODE HERE" line used to be that is changing what the function does.

Add only the loop code to the original boilerplate and you'll pass the challenge.

thank you!!
