My code is as follows: var count = 0; while (count < 26) { document.write(count + " "); var count += 1; }

it says there's an error on the syntax, but I can't figure it out. Can you guys please help?

var count = 0;
while (count < 26) {
  document.write(count + " ");
  var count += 1;

Hi Daniela,

You don't need the var before the count variable on the final line of your while loop as you have already declared it in line 1
