PHP Build a Simple PHP Application Listing Inventory Items Associative Arrays

Echo Year in brackets

I have tried so many different versions of this I am going a little loopy. How do I get this to pass?


$movie = array(
    "title" => "The Empire Strikes Back",
  "year" => "1980"


<h1><?php echo $movie["title"]; (echo $movie["year"]); ?></h1>


<h1><?php echo $movie["title"]; echo ($movie["year"]); ?></h1>


<h1><?php echo $movie["title"]; ?><?php echo ($movie["year"]); ?></h1>

Remember, one of the things php is for is to generate html.

Hi Sayth,

That is a tough one. Your third try is close. We want to display the year inside of the parenthesis. So the second php statement has to be inside of the parenthesis; displaying the year is all the whole statement does. Here is the correct answer.


<h1><?php echo $movie["title"]; ?> (<?php echo $movie["year"]; ?>)</h1>

Have to fit the whole php call in the brackets, ok, thanks I was definitely stuck.
