index.php
<?php

//Place your code below this comment
$firstName = "Rasmus";

$fullName = $firstName. " "  .$lastName was the original creator of PHP. \n;
echo $fullName;

?>

Try this:

<?php

//Place your code below this comment $firstName = "Rasmus"; $lastName = "Lerdorf"; $fullName = $firstName . ' ' . $lastName . " was the original creator of PHP. \n"; echo $fullName;

?>

It seems like you forgot the double quotes on your fullName variable.

This should work.

$firstName = "Rasmus";

$lastName = "Lerdorf";

$fullName = $firstName .' '. $lastName ;

echo $fullName. ' was the original creator of PHP.'. "\n";
