Build a Simple PHP Application - Inventory Items - Challenge task 5 of 7

Ok so ive been stuck on this section and im not sure why.

I have entered the code in when I preview it comes up with what it is suppose to so i then click check work and then says task 1 is no longer working.

Below is the question in the challenge and under that is my answer.


QUESTION - Right now, the text shows the wrong letters; we want it to display my real favorite letters from the array. In the next few tasks, we’ll change that. This task has two steps. (1) Add the start of a foreach loop with an opening curly brace between the third and fourth echo commands. The foreach loop should load each element from the letters array, one at a time, into a working variable named letter. (2) Add the closing curly brace for the foreach loop between the fourth and fifth echo commands. (Leave the letters AB in the fourth echo command for now. At the end of this step, the page should say my favorite letters are ABABAB.)



$letters=array("D", "G", "L");

echo "My favorite "; echo count($letters); echo " letters are these: "; foreach($letters as $letters) { echo "AB"; } echo "."; ?>

Any help or direction would be great :D

Hi Adam,

You have a little typo here. The working variable name should be $letter (singular):

 foreach($letters as $letter) 

Also, when you post code in the form, you should use Markdown so it display's properly. There is a link to the Markdown Cheatsheet right below the comment box.

always something simple aye :D thanks for that tho.

yea i see that now will use markdown next time.


No problem :-)
