Error message " Bummer! You need to check that $studentOneGPA is equal to 4.0"

Can someone help why I'm getting this error message? Preview seems okay.

$studentOneName = 'Dave';
$studentOneGPA = 3.8;

$studentTwoName = 'Treasure';
$studentTwoGPA = 4.0;

//Place your code below this comment
if ($studentOneGPA == "4.0") {
  echo "$studentOneName made the Honor Roll.";
} else{
  echo "$studentOneName has a GPA of $studentOneGPA.";

if ($studentTwoGPA == "4.0") {
  echo "$studentTwoName made the Honor Roll.";
} else{
  echo "$studentTwoName has a GPA of $studentTwoGPA.";

I would suggest to remove double quates from both if statements, because it expects float variable not string. It seems challenge checks even data types:)

if ($studentOneGPA == 4.0)

Thank you. It works now. Yes, it seems so :)
