What am I doing wrong?? 😬 Some help Please..

I thought I've been understanding how "while" works... Could someone explain why my code gets a Syntax Error?

script.js
var count = 0;

while( count <= 26 ){
  document.write(`The loop ran ${count} number of times`);
  count +=1;
}

Well first of all you loop 27 times instead of 26 because you start from 0.

Besides that I think that this challenge only accepts the older version of JavaScript, i.e. ES5 that doesn't support template literals, so try to change the content to just count and it should be fine.

Hope it helps!

Thank you soooo much..as soon as I changed it it worked. I honestly though that I could use template literals since as the lesson started it actually advises to use const/let/template literals..

Either way.. grateful for the help. Cheers 😊
