Some coding exercises are so popular and legendary, they are the primary topic of watercoolers, sports bars, and family dinners. One such exercise is FizzBuzz. The rules of FizzBuzz are as follows:

  1. We want to print each number from 1 to 100
  2. For any number that is a multiple of 3, we print the word Fizz instead of the number
  3. For any number that is a multiple of 5, we print the word Buzz instead
  4. For any number that is a multiple of both 3 and 5, we print the word FizzBuzz

An example of output here could be:


The exercise is to turn these rules into some sweet SWEET JavaScript code that prints the proper output to the Console for numbers starting at 1 and going all the way to 100.


Starting Point

The easiest way is to fork the following Codepen pen and start adding your modifications:

See the Pen FizzBuzz by Kirupa Chinnathambi (@kirupa) on CodePen.

You may want to open the pen in a new window if you want more space to code your solution or bring up the Console to see the output.

If you prefer developing locally in your favorite code editor (like Visual Studio Code), create a new HTML document and copy/paste the following boilerplate/starting content into it:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
  <meta charset="UTF-8">
  <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge">
  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">

The HTML you see here is just the bare minimum content needed to help us get our web page up and running. The rest of the content is what you will add entirely on your own!

Hint: Some Learning Resources
