Solution 1 (Click to Show/Hide)
function printManyTimes(str) {
  "use strict";
  const SENTENCE = str + " is cool!";
  for (let i = 0; i < str.length; i += 2) {
    console.log(SENTENCE);
  }
}
printManyTimes("freeCodeCamp");

Code Explanation

By using const on sentence we can make it read-only and by using let on i inside the for loop we can avoid using var all together. For added code clarity we can also change sentence to SENTENCE to show that it is a constant.
