Tell us what’s happening:

Your code so far


function factorialize(num) {
  var a = 1;
  for (i = 1 + num; i <= num; i++){
      a = a * i;
    }
  return a
  
}

factorialize(5);

It says i is not defined.

That is correct. You did not declare i in your for loop. You made it global, which the tests do not approve. Try to avoid using global variables unless the challenge specifically tells you to use one.
