Hi there, Keith Mbofana! For this challenge, you don't need to var_dump anything. But to assign the result of an evaluation to a variable, you'd do it like anything else really. Remember, the thing on the right side of a single equals sign runs first. The evaluation === does a comparison and then returns either a true or false.

So you could do:

$isIdentical = $a === "5";

Hope this helps! :sparkles:

thank you Jennifer Nordel
