//Place your code below this comment
    $integerOne = 1;

Just check what you're displaying.

var_dump() displays really useful information. But it's a lot more than the challenge is asking.

On Task 2 you must just manipulate the values of the variables $IntegerOne and $IntegerTwo. You don't need var_dump() for that (unless you're curious to see what's happening, in that case, go for it, preview, then comment or delete, ).

On Task 3, you must display the product of $IntegerOne and $floatOne.


// Task 1 - Create the variables and assign the values.
$integerOne = 1;
$integerTwo = 2;
$floatOne = 1.5;

// Task 2 - Add 5 to $integerOne. Subtract 1 from $integerTwo.

$integerOne += 5;
$integerTwo -= 1;

// Task 3 - Multiply $integerOne by $floatOne and display the results.
echo $integerOne*$floatOne;

// You could even do something like this below. (completely unnecessary on this case, but just for you to know).

// $product = $integerOne * $floatOne;
// echo $product;


Thank you for the help.
