PHP PHP Basics Daily Exercise Program Conditionals

php conditionals

The task asks the following:

Check if each student has a GPA of 4.0.

If the student has a GPA of 4.0, use the student name variable to replace NAME when displaying the following line:

NAME made the Honor Roll

ELSE If the students GPA is not equal to 4.0, within an else block, use the student name variable to replace NAME AND the student GPA variable to replace STUDENT GPA when displaying the following line:

NAME has a GPA of STUDENT GPA

I keep getting incorrect output. I have run the script on my own computer and the output is just fine.

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

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

Hey Ashraf Khalifa ! You are terribly close. But the output isn't quite what they're expecting for "Dave". Treasure's is just fine.

Your current output for Dave is:

Dave has a 3.8 GPA

But the output they're wanting is:

Dave has a GPA of 3.8

The echo format they're expecting in the case the student does not have a 4.0 looks like this:

echo "$studentOneName has a GPA of $studentOneGPA\n";

Hope this helps! :sparkles:

Thanks Jennifer, was not looking at the obvious, Thanks for the help.
