Hi Rico,

There's a couple of points here. First, your condition is the wrong way round. You're asking it to loop while the value in counter is greater than the length of the array. The start value of counter is zero, so the loop will never run. Switch that test to seeing if counter is less than the length of numbers.

Next, inside the loop, you've incremented counter; that's essential!! You've also accessed numbers by using numbers[counter] - that's correct too. But you don't want to print it; you want to add it into sum. So change your code to sum += numbers[counter] and I think that'll pass the challenge.

I hope that helps,

Steve.
