Example Output: Rasmus Lerdorf was the original creator of PHP

Hi there! Can you help me with this? I try a lot of options, using dot and .=, but computer don't accept my work.


//Place your code below this comment

$firstName= 'Rasmus';
$lastName= 'Lerdorf';
$fullname= "$firstName $lastName";
$fullname= "$firstName $lastName was the original creator of PHP. /n";

echo $fullname;

Your code is correct for the most part but not to the specification of the challenge, and it could be simplified a little bit, it should read:


//Place your code below this comment
$firstName = "Rasmus";
$lastName = "Lerdorf";
$fullname = "$firstName $lastName";

echo "$fullname was the original creator of PHP\n";


Also your new line "\" was the wrong way around. (\n)

Hope this helps :)
