fish method

I couldn't get the last challenge, below is my response

Public function getInfo(){
return "A" . $this->common_name "is an". $this->flavor "flavored fish.The world record weight is" .$this->record weight;
}

echo $bass->getInfo();

<?php
class Fish {
Public $common_name;
Public $flavor;
Public $record_weight;

  function __construct($name,$flavor,$record){
    $this-> common_name=$name;
    $this-> flavor=$flavor;
    $this-> record_weight=$record;
  }
    Public function getInfo(){
      return "A" $this->common_name "is an" $this->flavor "flavored fish.The world record weight is" $this->record-weight;
  }
}
$bass = new Fish('Largemouth Bass','Excellent','22 pounds 5 ounces');
echo $bass->getInfo();
?>

Hi Abiodun, I think the issue is the following line:

<?php
 return "A" $this->common_name "is an" $this->flavor "flavored fish.The world record weight is" $this->record-weight;
?>

you have used record-weight when you need to use record_weight, try changing it to the following:

<?php
 return "A" .  $this->common_name . "is an" . $this->flavor . "flavored fish.The world record weight is" . $this->record_weight;
?>

Hope that helps!!

Edit: You also need to concatenate your statement by adding "." in between each part

I have changed the property to record_weight but it didn't help.

Hmm that's strange I've just inputted the edited code into the challenge and it passed fine, here is your code with the changes made to it, if you want to try it again:

<?php

class Fish {
 Public $common_name;
Public $flavor;
Public $record_weight;

   function __construct($name,$flavor,$record){
    $this-> common_name=$name;
    $this-> flavor=$flavor;
    $this-> record_weight=$record;
  }

    Public function getInfo(){
      return "A" .  $this->common_name .  "is an" . $this->flavor . "flavored fish.The world record weight is" . $this->record_weight; //used record_weight and added concatenation
  }
}

$bass = new Fish('Largemouth Bass','Excellent','22 pounds 5 ounces');

?>

I have no idea how it happened but the last code worked,thank you.

I think there may also be an issue with the spaces between the text and variables. Try this (I have not tested it):

return "A " . $this->common_name . " is an ' . $this->flavor . " flavored fish.  The world record weight is " . $this->record_weight . ".";
