JavaScript JavaScript Loops, Arrays and Objects Tracking Multiple Items with Arrays Iterating through an Array

What is wrong with this for loop?

I have spent hours on this challenge task. Use a for or while loop to iterate through the values in the temperatures array from the first item-100-to the last-10. Inside the loop, log the current array value to the console. var temperatures =[100, 90, 99, 80, 70, 65, 30, 10];

My answer is: for (var i= 0; i < temperatures.length; i +=1) { console.log(temperatures); } I get a message saying the items in the array are not logged out in order. Have to be in order starting at 100 and ending at 10.

script.js
var temperatures = [100,90,99,80,70,65,30,10];
  for (var i = 0; i < temperatures.length; i += 1) {
   console.log(temperatures);
  }

In your loop each time you are logging the entire array instead of the array values. Hint: use i as an index to get the array values

Thanks, Kris. I finally figured it out.
