# Break/Continue in a for Loop

The `break` statement is employed to prematurely exit a loop. In our previous task, when searching for the number 8 in the list, if we wish to conclude the search as soon as we find the element, we can utilize `break`.

Examine the code below:

How does the code work?

Now, let's work on counting all occurrences of 8 in our list using the `continue` statement. The `continue` statement allows us to skip a specific block of code for the current iteration of the loop only.

Examine the code below:

How does the code work?

To multiply the elements of the list and stop the program when the next multiplication exceeds 100, follow these steps:

1. Configure a `for` loop to operate on the `numbers`, using `i` as an element of the list.
2. Set the condition to check if the result of the multiplication (`counter`) is going to reach or exceed 100. If so, break out of the loop; otherwise, continue multiplying by the next element.
3. Print the value of the `counter`.
