Hi Charles,

You need to concatenate spaces rather than \n (which is a line break) so should be...


$firstName = "Mike";
$middleName = "the";
$lastName = "Frog";
$fullName = $firstName . " " . $middleName . " " . $lastName;

echo "The designer at Shirts 4 Mike shirts is named " . $fullName;


Hope that helps :)
