I'm not sure what is wrong with my spacing in this example!

What would the "proper spacing" be in this situation? Where am I not employing proper spacing? Thanks so much!

index.php
<?php
$studentOneName = 'Dave';
$studentOneGPA = 3.8;

$studentTwoName = 'Treasure';
$studentTwoGPA = 4.0;

//Place your code below this comment

if ( $studentOneGPA == 4.0 ) {
  echo "$studentOneName" . "made the Honor Roll";
}

else {
  echo "$studentOneName" . 'has a GPA of' . "$studentOneGPA";
}


if ( $studentTwoGPA == 4.0 ) {
  echo "$studentTwoName" . "made the Honor Roll";
}

else {
  echo "$studentTwoName" . 'has a GPA of' . "$studentTwoGPA";
}

?>

Yes like Kris said, if you preview the page, you'll notice you're missing some spaces in your concatenations. The way you have it now, the sentences have some words that are mashed together....
