simply repetitive task with loops

Challenge Task 1 of 1

This is a nearly complete while loop, but something is missing. The loop should run 10 times, but it's not working at all. Can you fix it?

var counter = 1;
while (counter <10) {
    document.write("<p>Now in loop #" + counter >10 + "</p>");
    counter += 1;

1 Answer


As you're starting the counter at 1 instead of 0, to loop it through 10 times, you'll need to change this line:

while (counter < 10) {

to either:

while (counter <= 10) {


while (counter < 11) {

Hope that helps :)
