Hi David,

What you've got is pretty much there, however it will currently read:

Davehas a GPA of3.8

You need to ensure you've included a space in your strings so that the output displays correctly. I've attached code below that will complete the challenge, pay careful attention to the spaces after each string.

<?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";
}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;
}
?>
