PHP PHP Basics (Retired) PHP Data & Structure PHP Variables

I am trying to echo a $name within PHP but the interpreter is not seeing it.

The quiz's objective is to echo the name "Mike" but it is saying it is not seeing it. This is my code:

<?php

$name = "Mike";

?>

<?php echo $name ?>

index.php
<?php

$name = "Mike"; 

?>

<?php echo $name ?>

It's the challenge, they want you to have everything inside a single php block.

Thanks!
