PHP Object-Oriented PHP Basics (Retired) Properties and Methods Mid-Course Challenge

Need some help with this. What am I doing wrong?

Did add the method correctly?


class Fish {
 public $common_name;
  public $flavor;
  public $record_weight;  

  function __construct($name, $flavor, $record){
   $this->common_name = $name;
   $this->flavor = $flavor;
   $this->record_weight = $record;

    public function getInfo(){
    return "A " , $this->name, "is an ", $this->flavor, "flavored fish.  The word record weight is ", 
      $this->record, ".";

$bass = new Fish("Largemouth Bass", "Excellent", "22 pounds 5 ounces");

Hi Barbara,

you have to declare the function outside of the construct but currently, it is within your __construct. Thus, you should close the __construct with a closing brace and after that declare the getInfo function.

Let me know if that worked for you.
