error message unclear

need explanation of error message I have the following code: $a = 5; $isBoolean = true; $isIdentical; $isIdentical = var_dump($a === "5"); and get an error message saying "do not see variable $isIdentical" I am not sure why.

1 Answer

var_dump doesn't return anything. See docs

Try your code in a workspace and add the last line:

$a = 5;
$isBoolean = true;
$isIdentical = var_dump($a === "5");

you'll see $isIdentical is assigned NULL

treehouse:~/workspace$ php index.php                                                                           

So for the challenge eliminate var_dump and you'll pass
