I'm sot sure how to start this?

do I have to split the code into do and while braces?

var secret = prompt("What is the secret password?");
while ( secret !== "sesame" ) {
  secret = prompt("What is the secret password?");    
document.write("You know the secret password. Welcome.");

I'm not sure what you mean by "split", but for a "do" loop, the word "do" comes before the opening brace of the loop body, and the "while" (with the conditional expression) comes after the closing brace of the loop body:

// ordinary "while" loop:
while (conditional_expression) {
    // loop body code

// a "do" loop:
do {
    // loop body code
} while (conditional_expression);
