Build a Simple PHP Application I'm stuck on the Objects Code Challenge Task 4 of 7. Can't come up with correct syntax

Not sure if not correctly assigning a value of 17 to the number property of the $checker object, or the echo statement that display it.


$checker = new PalprimeChecker();
$number = 17;

echo "The number " . $checker->number . ;
echo "(is|is not)";
echo " a palprime.";

Hi Andrew,

number is a property and not a method. So you need to assign the number 17 to that property. You can't call it like a function and pass in the number as an argument. $checker->number = 17;

Also, the challenge is instructing you to preserve the space after the number in the echo statement. You'll need to concatenate a string with a single space onto the end.

echo "The number " . $checker->number . " ";

Thanks, Jason. That works. I understand now. During my many attempts at these two lines of code, I alternated between having one syntactically correct and the one wrong.
