Now using the $favorite_colors array, echo mike's favorite color

Nothing seems to work, though it works well in sublime text

echo $favorite_colors['mike'];

index.php
<?php

//Place your code below this comment
  $colors = ['red', 'green', 'blue'];
  echo $colors[1];

$favorite_colors = array  (
'mike' => 'green',
'jane' => 'blue',
'chris' => 'red'
);

echo $favorite_colors["mike"];

Hi Leo Koo,

I noticed that your $colors array values in wrong order according to challenge requirements. It should be.

<?php
$colors = array('red', 'blue', 'green');
?>

All the rest seems ok:)

Hi Leo Keo,

You could also reference the $colors array instead of hardcoding the values again in the $favorite_colors array

<?php
$favorite_colors = array(
    'mike' => $colors[0],
    'jane' => $colors[1],
    'chris' = > $colors[2]
)
?>

That way you only need change the colours in the $colors array.
