Create a PHP Code Block with a Variable called "name" inside of that block and set it equal to "Mike".
This is the challenge
My solution was
<?php echo $name ?>
It returns an error saying. Make sure you call; your variable $name
$name="Mike"; <?php echo $name ?>

I don't think you need a $ sign when calling it. I mean take out the second dollar sign.

I think you need to assign your $name variable inside of the PHP tags. Also, you would need to end your echo statement with a semi-colon.
