JavaScript JavaScript Loops Working with 'for' Loops Dynamically Display HTML with a Loop

Why does ${i} display instead of numbers in the circle divs?

Instead of numbers displaying in each of the circles, I get the symbols ${i}. Why does this happen? Here is my code:

const main = document.querySelector('main'); let html = '';

for (let i=0; i<=10; i++) { html += '<div>${i}</div>'; } main.innerHTML = html;

Thanks! Carmen

You are using single quotes instead of backticks in '<div>${i}</div>'. To use template literals, try using ` instead of '.

🙏 🙏 🙏 Thank you jb30! It took me another couple of minutes to locate the backticks on my keyboard but problem solved! Have a great weekend!
