I have typed the integer out correctly and added the 5 in the same why the video has shown me .... and still wrong?!?

i have tried typing it with the var_dump , echo, or just simply putting + $integerFive.. What am I doing wrong i have watched the video like 7 times???? should i just give up at this point?


//Place your code below this comment

echo $integerOne + $integerTwo + $integerTwo;

Looking at the challenge you need to add 5 to the first variable and subtract 1 from the second variable. You seem to be adding the variables together than outputing them. Here's an example with different numbers:


$integerOne = 5;

$integerOne += 2;

$integerTwo = 3;

$integerTwo -= 1;

//Place your code below this comment
$integerOne = 1;
$integerTwo = 2;
$floatOne = 1.5;

$integerOne = $integerOne + 5;
$integerTwo = $integerTwo - 1;

echo $integerOne * $floatOne;
