Hi Pitrov, you are so close. You just need to start your counter at 0, so the first number of 2 will log and change the number it increases by to 2 instead of 1 since it only wants even numbers.

var i = 0;
while (i<24) {
   i = i +2;

Let me know if you need any further help.

Thanks alot! 2 others said it wrong. but I still dont understand why they didnt accept mine.

You're welcome! I know it can be frustrating and sometimes it is a simple typo that causes the problem even when you have the main idea correct. Best wishes to you in learning JavaScript!
