PHP Using Cookies and JWTs for Secure Authentication Cookies Working with Cookies

In the redirect.php file. The redirect function accepts a single cookie parameter. a. Check that a cookie has been pass

Stuck on this challenge and not sure how to proceed. What am I doing wrong?

cookies.php
<?php
require __DIR__ .'/vendor/autoload.php';

request()->cookies->has('cookie_name');
request()->cookies->get('cookie_name');
redirect.php
<?php

function redirect($path, \Symfony\Component\HttpFoundation\Cookie $cookie = null)
{
    $response = \Symfony\Component\HttpFoundation\Response::create(
        null, 
        \Symfony\Component\HttpFoundation\Response::HTTP_FOUND, 
        ['Location' => $path]
    );
    $response->send();
}
redirect()->cookies->has('Location');

I am also facing the same problem, could you tell me how to proceed? Thank you very much and waiting for your reply.

///cookies.php
<?php
require __DIR__ .'/vendor/autoload.php';

// create cookie
$cookie = new Symfony\Component\HttpFoundation\Cookie('teacher', 'Alena');

redirect('/courses', $cookie);
///redirect.php
<?php

function redirect($path, \Symfony\Component\HttpFoundation\Cookie $cookie = null)
{
    $response = \Symfony\Component\HttpFoundation\Response::create(
        null, 
        \Symfony\Component\HttpFoundation\Response::HTTP_FOUND, 
        ['Location' => $path]
    );
  if (key_exists('cookies', $cookie)) {
    $response->headers->setCookie($cookie);
  }
    $response->send();
}
