# Why is hello world not repeated?

```i = 0
string ="hello world"
while i <= 10
string ="Hello world #{i}"
puts "i is now #{i}"
i += 1
end
puts "the final value of #{i}"
puts "The final value of #{string}"

What was the significance of having string ="Hello World #{i}" in the code?
Why does it not repeat?
Why does it not read Hello world 11?

Simple, but Jason just blew over it.
```

hey man,

• I think the significance of Hello World #{i} is going to come apparent in the next video - it's to do with when the different loops stop/start running
• It doesn't repeat because you're only change the value of 'string' not puts (put string-ing) it to the page.
• Because you've stopped the loop of a condition of <= 10. Therefore i will never equal 11. if you put i +=1 at the beginning of the loop, before you redeclare string you would get Hello World 11.

On the last repetition of the loop you've given us, the value of i will be 11.

I also cannot seem to post the block code. excuse me while I figure that out.

Hey hey--

1. To post your code, you can refer to this How-to Guide.

2. It doesn't repeat in the same way that `i` did because you're only using one `puts` for Hello World.

If you did it this way instead, you'd get it to repeat.

```i = 0

string = "Hello World"

while i <= 10
string = "Hello World #{i}"
puts "i is now #{i}"
puts "Hello World #{i}"
i += 1
end

puts "The final value of i is #{i}"
puts "The final value of string is #{string}"
```

Hope that helps!

You are not += or incrementing "Hello World" you are only incrementing i with a += 1. So, you are really only incrementing i from 0 till it reaches or equals 10.
