Need some explaining

// Setup

const myArray = [];

let i = 10;

// Only change code below this line

do {




while (i < 5) ;


can you explain where “i” is suppose to = 11

Trace through the code line by line, keeping track of what that variable is.

Let’s forget it’s some code and try to read it as plain english to keep it simpler :slight_smile:
The variable i starts as 10 right?
Next is no matter what put the current value of i in the array. Wouldn’t that make myArray [10]? then increase the value of i by 1.
That makes myArray [10] and i to be 11 right?
What’s the next step? is i < 5? It’s not because 11 > 5. So no reason to go again through the do…while loop and we move to the next statement which is the console.log(myArray)

I hope this helps :slight_smile:

Nothing to feel embarassed about man. Sometimes even after years of coding you stumble into simple code and you just need to stop trying, go for a walk and come back and try again with a fresh brain while keeping it simple. So keep fire burning you are doing great :slight_smile:

I’ve edited your post for readability. When you enter a code block into a forum post, please precede it with a separate line of three backticks and follow it with a separate line of three backticks to make it easier to read.

You can also use the “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) to add backticks around text.

See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard.
Note: Backticks (`) are not single quotes (’).
