Check if each student has a GPA of 4.0.

If the student has a GPA of 4.0, use the student name variable to replace NAME when displaying the following line:

NAME made the Honor Roll

ELSE If the students GPA is not equal to 4.0, within an else block, use the student name variable to replace NAME AND the student GPA variable to replace STUDENT GPA when displaying the following line:

NAME has a GPA of STUDENT GPA

index.php
<?php
$studentOneName = 'Dave';
$studentOneGPA = 3.8;

$studentTwoName = 'Treasure';
$studentTwoGPA = 4.0;
if ($studentTwoGPA = 4.0 &&  $studentOneGPA= 4.0)  {
echo 'NAME made the Honor Roll';
}
else if ($studentOneGPA !== 4.0) {
echo 'STUDENT GPA';
}
ELSE {
echo 'NAME has a GPA of STUDENT GPA';
}

?>

Try an if/else statement for each student separately. ex: if ($studentOneGPA == 4.0) { echo $studentOneName . " made the Honor Roll"; } else { echo $studentOneName . " has a GPA of " . $studentOneGPA; }

Then do the same for student two

The instructions say to "use the student name variable to replace NAME AND the student GPA variable to replace STUDENT GPA"

So you won't actually use the words "NAME" or "STUDENT GPA" in your outputs. Where those are shown in the sample output, you need to make your output show the contents of the associated variables instead.

So, for example, the output might look like this:

Dave has a GPA of 3.8

Also, be sure to output a line for each student, not just one of them.
