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)
}

count never increments so this is an infinite loop

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
