The instructions say to log "all of the even numbers from 2 to 24". So you'll want to start with 0, and when you increment the value, be sure to increase it so it skips the odd numbers and only returns the even numbers.

But how do you get "notepad" to run JavaScript code?

Huh, Doesnt notepad work? Oops, I thought that sublime text, atom etc is just some cool notepads ( like notepad++) I tested it on sublime Text. How do I do that? I am a begginer. Thanks

I haven't tried it myself, but I understand that Sublime will execute JavaScript. I just thought you were referring to the app named "notepad" that comes with Windows, which is a very plain text editor.
