Challenge task 3 of concatenation


I'm doing the challenge in between video's about PHP basics and now i'm working on the challenge about concatenation and i don't know what i'm doing wrong. Task 1 and 2 are good and then when i submit my answer for task 3 i get the message "Oops! It looks like tast 2 is no longer passing.". I tried everything and talked about it with colleages and they say that it's good what i have filled in. I have used the following code: $firstName = 'Rasmus'; $lastName = 'Lerdorf'; $fullName = $firstName .' '. $lastName; $fullName .= ' was the original creator of PHP' ."\n"; echo $fullName;

Can you see what is wrong with this answer? Thanks for your help. Greetings Ej

$firstName = 'Rasmus';
$lastName = 'Lerdorf';
$fullName = $firstName .' '. $lastName;
$fullName .= ' was the original creator of PHP' ."\n";
echo $fullName;

Instead of adding the extra string (Rasmus being the creator of PHP) to the fullName variable which changes it to no longer just being Rasmus Lerdorf just use the fullName variable in your echo statement

$fullName = $firstName .' '. $lastName;
echo "{$fullName} was the original creator of PHP.\n";
