Not sure where to add break in order to immediately terminate the for loop if the value i is equal to message/2

let message = "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious"; message = message.length;

for ( let i = 1; i < message; i++ ) {

script.js
let message = "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious";
message = message.length;

for ( let i = 1; i < message; i++ ) {
  if ( i === message / 2 ) {
    console.log('The loop has terminated...');
  } 
  console.log(`Logging the number ${i}`);
}

console.log('The program continues...');

Hi Angelica!

Put break just after this (inside the if statement):

console.log('The loop has terminated...');
// Here

Keep in mind if you put it before the console.log statement then it would never log 'The loop has terminated...'.

I hope that helps.

Stay safe and happy coding!
