PHP Build a Simple PHP Application Listing Inventory Items Associative Arrays

help, please!

Replace that with a PHP command that INSTEAD displays the title of the new movie from the array. (Be sure to leave the <h1> tags, the parentheses, and the year intact.)

Bummer! It looks like the title of the second movie is in the <h1>, but something else isn't quite right. Double-check the parentheses and the year.

$movie = array ("title" =>  "The Empire Strikes Back");

<h1><?php echo $movie["title"] .(1985)?></h1>

Take a look back at concatenation. Whenever you want to echo a string, you need to wrap it in quotes. You'll also want to leave a space between the title and the year, so include that in the string. (I also added a semi-colon to close the statement but I don't believe it's necessary in this case)

<h1><?php echo $movie["title"] . " (1985)"; ?></h1>

This could also be done without echoing the year with php:

<h1><?php echo $movie["title"]; ?> (1985)</h1>

This might be necessary to pass, code challenges can be finicky.

Thank you very much!
