Associative Array Not Working

I thought that I was doing everything right, but it's not passing, so I don't know where I went wrong.


//Place your code below this comment
$integer_one = 1;
$integer_two = 2;
$golden = 1.618;
$bool = TRUE;
$colors = array('red', 'blue', 'green');

echo $colors[1]

$favorite_colors = array(
  'mike' => 'green';
  'jane' => 'blue';
  'chris' => 'yellow';

Hi Shanen - In the associative array, you need to separate the key-value pairs with commas instead of semicolons. Also, the echo statement is missing a semicolon.

Thanks, Kourosh! I saw that AFTER I posted this comment, but thank you for verifying that and for taking the time to respond so quickly. :)
