PHP Conditionals challenge. It gives the expected result, but code is not accepted. What's the expected code?

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

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

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

//Place your code below this comment

$gpaTarget = 4.0;

$students = array($studentOneName=>$studentOneGPA, $studentTwoName=>$studentTwoGPA);

foreach($students as $studentName => $studentGPA) {
    if ($studentGPA >= $gpaTarget) {
        echo $studentName . ' made the Honor Roll';
        echo "<br>";
    } elseif ($studentGPA < $gpaTarget) {
        echo $studentName . ' has a GPA of ' . $studentGPA;
        echo "<br>";
    }
 }

?>

btw, I understand that "<br>" is not processed as there are not html tags.

Your code appears to work just fine but they are looking for a simpler solution. This worked for me. Hope this helps!

<?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.";
}

echo '<br />';

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