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

The Refactor

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.

script.js
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);

This is the same challenge just like you did before, except you increase a variable by 2 instead of i += 1. Now you loop with i += 2.

for (i=0; i <= 24; i+=2) {
console.log(i)
};
