Need help on php quiz.

Here's a block of PHP code that displays the name of our website on the screen. Let's modify this to use a variable instead. Right now, the code displays the name of our website on the screen. Modify it to assign the name of our website to a variable called "name". (Don't forget to use a dollar sign in the variable name.) "I managed to solve the first task" <?php $name = "Shirts 4 Mike"; echo name; ?>

Here is the second task : Add another command after this to display the value of the variable on the screen. (Important: The code you write in each task should be added to the code written in the previous task.) I cannot understand the question clearly, I just keep on meeting bumper please help thanks :)

The first task was to write this:

$name = "Shirts 4 Mike";

The second task is to write the echo command that displays it to the screen. But you have an error in that echo command. It looks like you forgot the symbol that goes in front of variables:

echo _name;

Does that help?

<?php $name = "Shirts 4 Mike"; echo $name; ?>

Hi Randy, My code is not passing either. Whats wrong with the code below?

<?php $name = "Shirts 4 Mike"; echo name; ?>


Dollar sign before name variable

<?php $name = "Shirts 4 Mike"; echo $name; ?>
