How to echo Mike's name to screen?
I've tried just adding the php <?php echo $name ?>
I've also tried adding html, body, and paragraph tags.
<?php $name = "Mike"; ?> <!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <meta charset=utf-8> </head> <body> <section> <?php echo $name ?> </section> </body> </html>
You really don't have to do all that haha The simplest way to pass this challenge is to run your
echo $name; line after the variable creation line because that's what it wants you to do! :)
<?php $name = "Mike"; echo $name; ?>
