What am I doing incorrectly here?

I'm trying to complete this task in the JavaScript basics course, but it keeps saying I didn't do it correctly. I'm running the exact code in my browser and it works as it should. Why won't it say that I'm doing it correctly?

script.js
for ( let i = 2; i < 26; i += 2) {
  console.log(`${i}`);
}

You got a bit too fancy here. This code is converting the numbers into strings, but the challenge expects numbers to be logged (as was done in the original code). The difference wouldn't be visible in a browser.

  console.log(i);

Aha! That makes sense now. Thanks for your help!
