it tells me to do $array[#][STRING], thats what im doing and it just dont accept it.

//edit this array
$contacts = array(
                  array('name' => 'Alena Holligan', 'email' => 'alena.holligan@teamtreehouse.com'), 
                  array('name' => 'Dave McFarland', 'email' => 'dave.mcfarland@teamtreehouse.com'), 
                  array('name' => 'Treasure Porth', 'email' => 'treasure.porth@teamtreehouse.com'), 
                  array('name' => 'Andrew Chalkley', 'email' => 'andrew.chalkley@teamtreehouse.com')

//$contacts[0] will return 'Alena Holligan' in our simple array of names.
for($i=0; $i<4; $i++){
  echo ($i+1) . " ";
 echo "name: " . $contacts[$i]['name'] . "<br />\n";
 echo "email: " . $contacts[$i]['email'] . "<br />\n";

$contacts = array('Alena Holligan', 'Dave McFarland', 'Treasure Porth', 'Andrew Chalkley');

$contacts = array (
  array ( 'name' => 'Alena Holligan', 'email' => 'alena.holligan@teamtreehouse.com'),
  array ( 'name' => 'Dave McFarland','email' => 'dave.mcfarland@teamtreehouse.com'),
  array ( 'name' => 'Treasure Porth','email' => 'treasure.porth@teamtreehouse.com'),
  array ( 'name' => 'Andrew Chalkley','email' => 'andrew.chalkley@teamtreehouse.com')

echo "<ul>\n";
echo "<li>" . $contacts[0]['name'], ' : ' . $contacts[0]['email'] . "</li>\n";
echo "<li>" . $contacts[1]['name'], ' : ' . $contacts[1]['email'] . "</li>\n";
echo "<li>" . $contacts[2]['name'], ' : ' . $contacts[2]['email'] . "</li>\n";
echo "<li>" . $contacts[3]['name'], ' : ' . $contacts[3]['email'] . "</li>\n";
echo "</ul>\n";
