There are two ways to check a value in PHP

== results in an non-strict comparison (or similar). What that means is the number 2 and the string '2' are technically both equal even though one is a number and one is a string.

=== is a strict comparison (or identical comparison). If you compare the number 2 to the string '2' then it would result in the values not being equal.

The key to solving your problem lies in the word (IDENTICAL). Use the above information to look at your problem again and then let me know if you solved it!
