Why isn't my code logging the even numbers 2 through 24 to the console?

Hello, I'm absolutely stuck and can't figure out what's wrong with my code. Thank you for your help.

script.js
for ( let i = 2; i <= 24; i += 2 ) {
  console.log(`${i}`);
}

for(let i=2; i<=24; i++){
  if(i % 2 == 0){
      console.log(i);
        }
 }

The "if" statement will only even numbers because the % in JavaScript, divides a number and returns its remainder after the division.

ex)

2 / 2 = 0 , has no remainders , so it will meet the condition of "0" and will pass to the console

2 / 3 = has a remainder of 1 , so it doesn't meet the condition of 0 , so it will not be passed to the console

Looks like it's testing that the output is a number, but the code you've written is outputting a string.
