I can not figure out where is my mistake in this code?

<? php $studentOneName = 'Dave'; $studentOneGPA = 3.8;

$studentTwoName = 'Treasure'; $studentTwoGPA = 4.0;

if ($studentOneGPA >= 4){ echo $studentOneName . "Congrats fot the amazing!" . $studentOneGPA; }else { echo $studentOneName . " has a GPA of " . $studentOneGPA; }

if ($studentTwoName >= 4){ echo $studentTwoName . "Congrats fot the amazing!" . $studentOneGPA; }else { echo $studentTwoName . " has a GPA of " . $studentTwoGPA; }

?>

index.php
<? php
$studentOneName = 'Dave';
$studentOneGPA = 3.8;

$studentTwoName = 'Treasure';
$studentTwoGPA = 4.0;

if ($studentOneGPA >= 4){
echo $studentOneName . "Congrats fot the amazing!" . $studentOneGPA;
}else {
echo $studentOneName . " has a GPA of " . $studentOneGPA;
}

if ($studentTwoName >= 4){
echo $studentTwoName . "Congrats fot the amazing!" . $studentOneGPA;
}else {
echo $studentTwoName . " has a GPA of " . $studentTwoGPA;
}

?>

There are a few issues here:

  • the message "Bummer: You need to check that $studentOneGPA is equal to 4.0" (and not "4") is a clue
  • the challenge looks for certain outputs: "Congrats fot the amazing!" is not the same as " made the Honor Roll"
  • $studentTwoName is being tested instead of $studentTwoGPA
