"The for loop has the following syntax:

for (statement 1; statement 2; statement 3) {

Statement 1 is executed before the loop (the code block) starts.

Statement 2 defines the condition for running the loop (the code block).

Statement 3 is executed each time after the loop (the code block) has been executed."
