Catch Off By One Errors When Using Indexing bug

Tell us what’s happening:

Is this some kind of bug or what ?

Your code so far

function countToFive() {
  let firstFive = "12345";
  let len = firstFive.length;
  // Fix the line below
  for (let i = 0; i <= 5; i++) {
  // Do not alter code below this line

Link to the challenge:

I think you’re supposed to use len instead of 5 in the for-loop header. Then you’ll have to fix one more part to pass.

Yea this part --> Your code should set the terminal condition of the loop so it stops at the last index.
Also I changed this: for (let i = 0; i <= 5; i++) to this for (let i = 0; i <= len-1; i++)

That part can still be simplified. You don’t have to explicitly subtract 1 from len

for (let i = 0; i => len; i++) this one is correct too

It’s ok I found the correct answer for (let i = 0; i< len; i++)
