For the 3rd task, we want to use a simple if statement to check if the value stored in our $flavor variable is equal to Randy's favorite flavor of 'cookie dough'. Recalling the syntax for this type of conditional, we would write:

if( $flavor == 'cookie dough' ) {
    // echo statement goes here

Remember, the above logic says that "if (whatever is stored in the $flavor variable) is equal to 'cookie dough', then ....". So, if your favorite flavor is indeed cookie dough, and that is what you have stored in your $flavor variable, then the final echo statement will run! Otherwise, that last echo statement will be stepped over.
