PHP PHP Basics Daily Exercise Program Conditionals

Hey! I'm a little stuck on this exercise. Every time I check my work, it keeps saying "Use the variables"

I believe I have used the variables but I cannot for the life of me figure out what I am doing wrong. The outcomes are correct so I believe the IF ELSE statements are correct.

$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 "$studenTwoName" . ' has a GPA of ' . "$studentTwoGPA";

You're so close, you just misspelled one of the variables studenTwoNameis missing a "t". Change

echo "$studenTwoName" . ' has a GPA of ' . "$studentTwoGPA";


echo "$studentTwoName" . ' has a GPA of ' . "$studentTwoGPA";

and you should be good to go, hope it helps.

Thank you so much!

I need to learn to walk away and come back to it :)
