count never increments so this is an infinite loop

Hey Tawanda,

think you just needed count++ inside the loop to make sure it was incrementing

var count = 0;
while ( count < 26 ){
  count++
  document.write("The num is " + count)
}

You may have to ensure that you always increment or decrement your loops when using while.

Since you have count set at 0 and a condition saying count <26. An increment is your option here. Add count++ inside the loop
