this can be achieved by starting with "for" (no quotes) then creating an integer, assigning a value to it, specifying a parameter for it such as x<10 or i<7. at this point i++ can be used to increment your integer i after your print command is run. we're encouraged not to look things up so we can work through it but without the knowledge being provided to us about for loops and how to use them BEFORE having to do a task using them, I'd highly suggest looking up "Java For Loop" and "What Does i++ Do"
