You completed task 1 by assigning the name to the variable. Task 2 states: Add another command after this to display the value of the variable on the screen.

so to pass you need to echo your $name variable. you can echo the value of variables out like this:

$variable = "some variable";
echo $variable;

Ok thanks, I just tried to copy the code from the lesson that had a variable for name and price. Thanks, it works now! Brian
