Task of Challenge #05/54
Calculate the sum of numbers from 1 to 24 with a
For diversity, another challenge, but a simpler one! But that doesn’t mean you can switch off your brain 😉
We can’t just put the accumulated value of
sum inside the loop and print it to the console. It would then end up with 24 print outs.
We have to declare and initialize the variable (and please use
let here! You can read about the problems of declaring variables with
const in the featured article below. I advise you to do so!) outside of the loop in order to print it out afterward.
Declaring the variable inside the loop, then it would be initialized every iteration, instead of holding the actual accumulated value.
Furthermore, if we declared it inside the loop it would be out of our reach when we want to access it outside the loop. This is called a scope, declaring a variable inside a class/function/loop, makes it to a local variable which can’t be accessed from the outside (The article below addresses this in detail).
And this is the console output:
