# Loops in Javascript

Hello So I was watching Jim's tutorials on loops in Javascript and i'm trying to make the extra credit but it seems like the output is not what I desire.

Here is the program instructions:

Extra Credit Fizz Buzz

Write a program that loops through the numbers 1 through 100. Each number should be printed to the console, using console.log(). However, if the number is a multiple of 3, don't print the number, instead print the word "fizz". If the number is a multiple of 5, print "buzz" instead of the number. If it is a multiple of 3 and a multiple of 5, print "fizzbuzz" instead of the number.

Hint. Use loops and if/else statments. In javascript the % is the modulo, or remainder operator. a % b evaluates to the remainder of a divided by b. 11 % 3 is equal to 2.

This is my code:

for (var counter = 0; counter <=100; counter++) {

```if(counter%3==0){

console.log("fizz");

}

if(counter%5==0){

console.log("buzz");

}

if(counter%5 ==0 & counter%3==0){

console.log("fizzbuzz");
}

else{

console.log(counter);
}

}
```

Ive tried many things but i can't just make it work. If I just do it with numbers divisible by 3 without 5 and 5 and 3 it will work.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Gabriel.

Yep, as Scott said, getting your if statements correct is a core part of programming. It's something that you hopefully get better at with practice. I would write the if statements like this for this task:

```if(counter%5 ==0 && counter%3==0) {
console.log("fizzbuzz");
} else if(counter%3==0) {
console.log("fizz");
} else if(counter%5 ==0) {
console.log("buzz");
} else {
console.log(counter);
}
```

Basically, the reason I do the 5 and 3 is that you have to remember about if statements that the minute it reaches a true condition, it processes the true part and then stops processing. If you don't do it this way, it'll never get the 5 and 3 condition right.

This is a good example of how to think about the logic. I would recommend changing this if statement up and see what happens so you can learn more about them.

First, you'll want to use the javascript logical AND operator && (not the bitwise operator &).

Second, remember that an `else` statement only gets associated with a single `if` statement (and that an `if` statement may contain 0 or more `else if`s

Thank you guys.

I understand now.
