There was an error with your code: ReferenceError: Strict mode forbids implicit creation of global property 'j'

ik keep getting this error and dont know what it means. while my code is 100% correct.

script.js
for ( j = 2 ; j <= 24; j +=2)
{
console.log(j);
}
index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>

  <meta charset="utf-8">

<body>
<script src="script.js"></script>
</body>
</html>

Please declare data type of j in the start of the for loop such as var.

for (let j = 2 ; j <= 24; j +=2)
{
console.log(j);
}

since you're not explicitly declaring j (using let or var) it's throwing errors.
