I dont understand where or how i am going wrong would you please be able to help me.

Do i need 3 variable ?

$a = 5;
//Place your code below this comment
$isBoolean = true;
$isIdentical = "5";

var_dump($a == $isIdentical);

you need to compare $a to "5". Remember == is equal while === is Identical.

$isIdentical = (then place your comparison in here);

My payment had expired so i cant get the chance to try out the code but try this:

<?php $a = 5; //Place your code below this comment $isBoolean = true;

$isIdentical = $a == $isBoolean;

var_dump ($isIdentical);
