Hi M aqeel,

You might want to try this. Explained in the comments in the file hope this helps you.

<?php

//Place your code below this comment
// the variables from task one
$integerOne = 1;
$integerTwo = 2;
// add 5 to the current value of $integerOne
$integerOne += 5;
// substract 1 from the current value of $integerTwo
$integerTwo -= 1;
// set the $floatOne variable to 1.5
$floatOne = 1.5;
/*make a new variable called $result 
set that one to  
$integerOne * $floatOne
*/
$result = $integerOne * $floatOne;
//Than echo out the result
echo "$result";
echo "<br />";
var_dump($integerOne);
echo "<br />";
