Try leaving out the "Hello " and use only one space between the names.

And you don't need to "echo" anything until task 3 (and then you'll construct a whole sentence).

Try to concatenate your string.

$fullName = "Hello " . $firstName . " " . $lastName;

If you need me explain how this works please let me know. Thank You.

Concatenation is another approach (and would also work), but you'd still need to leave off the "Hello "! :see_no_evil:
