My code works in Preview, but it isn't being accepted

When I write in the following code it works perfectly in Preview. However when Check Code, it isn't accepted. Please can somebody advice?

<?php

$firstName = "Mike";
$middleName = "the";
$lastName = "Frog";

$fullName = $firstName . "\n" . $middleName . "\n" . $lastName;

echo "The designer at Shirts 4 Mike shirts is named $fullName";

?>

You must use space between variables not now line :

$fullName = $firstName." ".$middleName." ". $lastName;

Hi, thanks for your response. But still, I can't seem to get this to work.

<?php

$firstName = "Mike";
$middleName = "the";
$lastName = "Frog";
$fullName = $firstName . $middleName . $lastName;

echo "The designer at Shirts 4 Mike shirts is named ".$fullName;

?>

To concatenate with spaces you must use something like tgis:

$var = $var1." ".$var2;
