Not sure where I am heading wrong with this code

This is what I have done so far not sure where I am going wrong with the conditionals

index.php
<?php
$studentOneName = 'Dave';
$studentOneGPA = 3.8;

$studentTwoName = 'Treasure';
$studentTwoGPA = 4.0;

//Place your code below this comment
if ($studentOneGPA == "4.0") {
  echo "$studentOneName made the Honor Roll";
} elseif($studentOneGPA < "4.0") {
  echo "$studentOneName has a GPA of $studentOneGPA";
}

else {
  echo "$studentOneName has a GPA of $studentOneGPA";
}


if ($studentTwoGPA == "4.0") {
  echo "$studentTwoName made the Honor Roll";
}
else {
  echo "$studentTwoName has a GPA of $studentTwoGPA";
}


?>

Hi Francios, the code for the 2nd student is almost there, there's just one small issue with the gpa checking. The comparison should be with 4.0, not "4.0" so you are comparing to a float, rather than a string. You should then be able to modify the code for the first student.

<?php
if ($studentTwoGPA == 4.0) {
  echo "$studentTwoName made the Honor Roll";
} else {
  echo "$studentTwoName has a GPA of $studentTwoGPA";
}
