Why is this code wrong?

I think the issue is with syntax

script.js
for (var i = 2; i <= 24; i + 2)
{
  console.log(i);
}
index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
  <meta charset="utf-8">
  <title>JavaScript Loops</title>
</head>
<body>
<script src="script.js"></script>
</body>
</html>

The problem is that you need to replace i + 2 with i += 2, because i + 2 should always add two to 'i', but the value would never change, only once.

for (var i = 2; i <= 24; i += 2) {
  console.log(i) 
}
