JavaScript JavaScript Loops, Arrays and Objects Simplify Repetitive Tasks with Loops Refactor Using a Loop

Stuck

I've been stuck on this question for hours and its frustating because it keeps saying I'm wrong.

script.js
for  {console.log(24); }

The code below logs all of the even numbers from 2 to 24 to the JavaScript console. However, there's a lot of redundant code here. Re-write this using a loop.

console.log(2);
console.log(4);
console.log(6);
console.log(8);
console.log(10);
console.log(12);
console.log(14);
console.log(16);
console.log(18);
console.log(20);
console.log(22);
console.log(24);

// and the answer that you have given is
// for  {console.log(24); }

// good at the least you tried it, from the answer you have given
// could I please ask you to go through this video again and again https://teamtreehouse.com/library/for-loops-2
// until you come with a different answer, the answer you have given is wrong, you cannot simply mention 24

Originally I got this answer for (i=2;i<=24;i+=2) {

console.log(i); }

But it either kept telling me it only wanted the console or I was wrong. I’m not sure where I’m getting everything wrong

yes definitely it will tell

Bummer: You should only have console.log() one time in your code.

The code below logs all of the even numbers from 2 to 24 to the JavaScript console. However, there's a lot of redundant code here. Re-write this using a loop.

question clearly mentions, re-write the code, when it is about re-write the code, you should not append into the code, instead clear it, and then start write the code

your code is fine, nothing wrong with the code.

So keep for (i=2;i<=24;i+=2) {

console.log(i); } but erase everything else?

Thank you so much I greatly appreciate it
