Need help on this Code Challenge for PHP Basic.


It just kept saying that "Your foreach statement needs to assign the array keys to a temporary variable named $isbn."

My answer was :


$books["978-0743261690"] = "Gilgamesh";
$books["978-0060931957"] = "The Odyssey";
$books["978-0192840509"] = "Aesop's Fables";
$books["978-0520227040"] = "Mahabharta";
$books["978-0393320978"] = "Beowulf";

    <title>Five Great Books</title>
    <h1>Five Great Books</h1>
        <?php foreach($books as $book => $item) { 
          $isbn = array_keys($books);
            <li><?php echo $book; ?></li>
        <?php } ?>

Don't really quite understand the array keys.

Thanks in advance!

In your foreach you need to set up the temporary assignment there like this:

<?php foreach($books as $isbn => $book) { 

array_keys() gets the values of all the keys in the entire array:
