I'm stuck on this, not sure what to do. Please help!

This is what I've tried already

palindromic_primes.php
<?php 
function mimic_array_sum($array){
  $count = 0;
  foreach($array as $element){
    $count = $count + $element;
      return $count;
  }
}




$palindromic_primes = array(11, 757, 16361);
echo mimic_array_sum($palindromic_primes);

?>

<?php 
function mimic_array_sum($array){
  $count = 0;
  foreach($array as $element){
    $count = $count + $element;

  }
    return $count;  // return $count OUTSIDE foreach loop
}

$palindromic_primes = array(11, 757, 16361);
echo mimic_array_sum($palindromic_primes);

?>
