JavaScript JavaScript Loops, Arrays and Objects Simplify Repetitive Tasks with Loops Create a while Loop

In this challenge, you will create a while loop that prints to the document 26 times. We've added a variable named count

thought this was ok but not passing

var count = 0;
while(count < 27) {
(document.write(count += '')count += 1; 

i think u should remove parantheses before document.write

var count = 0;
while(count < 26) {
count += 1; 

You have to seperate your statements. Also your condition was wrong (1 too big). You also have syntax errors...I would recommend to watch the video agian.

You have two statements in your while block that must be separated with semi-colon.
The first statement will fail, as you are trying to add an empty string to the counter variable.
You can print anything to the document, it does not need to be concatenated, just pick a string of text.
