php basics echo mike's name
echo a name
<?php $name = "Mike"; ?> <p><?php echo "Mike" ?></p>

I don't know much about php but it should be like this
<?php $name = "Mike"; echo $name; ?>
Your code is almost correct. All you were missing was the trailing
;-sign after the echo to have correct php syntax. However, you'd probably want to echo the variable
$name instead of the string "Mike".

I just tried doing it that way right now, but it did not work. Code below just returned "I do not see the name "MIke"."
Abraham Swarays answer worked wonders though! Shame we didn't learn that yet.
<?php $name = "Mike"; ?> <p><?php echo $name ?></p>
