Unfortuntely am stuck with the printing part of a challenge I have no idea where am going wrong it requires a loop and too display the numbers going up in 3s up to 20 but i cant figure out what am doing wrong ive spent two days doing it and slowly losing hope. If anyone can help that would great.

function returnMultiplesOf3()
{
var test = "work";
let i = 3;
for (i = 0; i < 20; i++)
if (i % 3 ===20) {
continue;
}
}

returnMultiplesOf3();
console.log(returnMultiplesOf3());

yeah so it basically should be going from 1-20 and disaplying mutiples of 3 in the output

Hi! Right now your code is:

function returnMultiplesOf3()
{
  var test = "work";
  let i = 3;
  for (i = 0; i < 20; i++)
    if (i % 3 ===20) {
      continue;
    }
}

returnMultiplesOf3();
console.log(returnMultiplesOf3());

But honestly, that doesn't do anything. It doesn't have a return value, and all you are saying is, if the current number is divisible by 3, continue. But it continues even if it is not.

Try this:

function returnMultiplesOf3()
{
  var test = "work";
  let i = 3;
  for (i = 0; i < 20; i+= 3)
    console.log(i)
}

returnMultiplesOf3();
console.log(returnMultiplesOf3());

Now, i skips by 3s until it gets up to 20 (but the highest it will go is 18 because 21 is bigger than 20)
