PHP Build a Simple PHP Application Listing Inventory Items Associative Arrays

can't figure this one out

Hi, I am trying to figure out task 5. I get a message that previous task does not pass. Any help here? Task: list two keys and two values within an HTML code. I tried without concatenation as two separate php strings and it didn't work either. Nothing turned up on Google.

<?php $movie = array( "title" => "The Empire Strikes Back", "year" => "1980" ); ?> <h1><?php echo $movie["title"]. "(" .$movie["year"]. ")" ; ?> </h1>

<table> <tr> <th>Director</th>

 $movie = array(
 "title" => "The Empire Strikes Back",
 "year" => "1980" 

 <?php echo $movie ["title"] .  ' (' . $movie["year"] . ')' ; ?>

I found the problem was that you needed to alternate the single and double quotes in the echo statement. Have a look at the code here and it might refresh your memory to previous lessons.

Still working on this. I tried the code you sent and it didn't work. I also tried without the concatenation and it didn't work. I have another question in to the forum. Let me know if you have further thoughts. Thx.

<?php $movie = array( "title" => "The Empire Strikes Back", "year" => "1980" ); ?>

<?php echo $movie["title"];?>(<?php echo $movie["year"];?>)
