you are doing great... task 3 is continuation of task 2, you are just updating the fullName variable again, instead echo fullName with new string

<?php

//Place your code below this comment
$firstName = "Rasmus";
$lastName = "Lerdorf";
$fullName = $firstName ." ". $lastName ;
echo $fullName . " was the original creator of PHP.\n" ;
?>
