I think there's a bug in this exercise
I put this in for the 2nd challenge $a = 5; $isIdentical = var_dump($a==="5");
Your automatic checker says that it can't find $isIdentical however, the Workspace shows bool(false) as the result in the console Please advise...
<?php $a = 5; //Place your code below this comment $isBoolean = true; $isIdentical = var_dump($a === "5"); ?>
You are asked to compare the variable $a as identical (equal AND of the same type) as the string "5" and assign the results to $isIdentical. There is no mention of using var_dump. If you read the documentation for var_dump you will see there is no return value so there is nothing to assign.
The challenge just wants the straight assignment as described:
$isIdentical = $a === "5";
