carriage return is giving an error \n in creating a line after $fullName

not sure how to properly activate carriage return \n

index.php
<?php

//Place your code below this comment
$firstName = "Rasmus";
$lastName = "Lerdorf";
$fullName = "$firstName .' '. $lastName\n";
?>

with escape sequence in PHP they must be in double quotes, so the fullName variable must be concatenated onto the sentence string:

Also the new line should be placed right at the end of the sentence in the 3rd part of the task.

echo $fullName . " was the original creator of PHP.\n";
