I don´t understand, i set: <?php echo $name ?> and dosen´t work
Do i need to write html tags? like <p> also do i need to set all the HTML like <!doctype html> <head> <body> etc..?
<?php $name = "Mike"; ?> <?php echo $name ?>

I think I saw someone post this same question earlier. This particular code challenge is being a bit picky - it wants you to use the existing PHP block. It's not necessary to write a new block for every line of code you write!
This should work for you:
<?php $name = "Mike"; echo $name; ?>
