Summary

Instruction

Excellent! To sum up this section, let us say a few words about the difference between for and while loops.

Although for and while loops can be often used interchangeably, the main conceptual difference is that for loops are executed a specific number of times, whereas while loops are executed until a given condition turns false.

The rule of thumb is to use while loops when you can't predict the specific number of iterations. Otherwise, use for loops.
