//Place your code below this comment
$firstName = 'Rasmus';
$lastName = 'Lerdorf';

$fullName .= ' was the original creator of PHP.';
$fullName .= "\n";

This task is a bit picky, It wants you to concatenate the full name with the rest of the output required then display it if that makes any sense. The value in the $fullName variable shouldn't change after you set it the first time.
