    What's the problem? and why are you adding 'count' to the result?

    BTW using Math.pow(..) is fine, but it's simpler just to multiply the number by itself...

    You don't want to add the count to the result....... Doing so changes the value of the result. What you meant to do is "number = number + counter".. But if you did that, you would get the squares of 0, 2, 4, 6, 8, etc.... This is because 0 + 0 = 0, then 1 + 1 = 2, etc... A simpler way to increase the value of number by 1 is to use "number++;" the same way you allowed the loop to stop by changing the counter in increments of 1.
