I don't know my mistake, maybe the challenge is wrong.

Here is my code for task 3 of the challenge:

<?php $name = "Mike"; if ($name === "Mike") { echo "Hi, I am Mike"; } ?>

It keeps telling me to copy the exact string above, and its exactly the same. I don't know whats wrong!

$name = "Mike";
if ($name === "Mike") {
   echo "Hi, I am Mike";

Hi, Adam. You are missing the exclamation mark inside of the sentence. Adding this will allow you to pass the challenge. In programming, you need to be very careful and precise when inputting code, as the smallest of mistakes or omissions can create huge headaches later on.
