Hi Shane Dolleirs,

You're really close to completing the challenge, but in the third part of your for loop you're not actually changing the value of i. You are summing the value of i and 2, but that's all that's happening in that third part of the for loop statement. So each iteration of the loop you're saying add 2 (which is the value assigned to i in the beginning) and 2, which equals 4, but you never reassign that value to i.

Here's some info on the assignment operators:
