Im on introducing arrays challenge question 5 of 7

Question is: Right now, the text shows the wrong letters; we want it to display my real favorite letters from the array. In the next few tasks, we’ll change that. This task has two steps. (1) Add the start of a foreach loop with an opening curly brace between the third and fourth echo commands. The foreach loop should load each element from the letters array, one at a time, into a working variable named letter. (2) Add the closing curly brace for the foreach loop between the fourth and fifth echo commands. (Leave the letters AB in the fourth echo command for now. At the end of this step, the page should say my favorite letters are ABABAB.)

This is my code <?php

$letters = array ("D","G","L");

echo "My favorite "; echo count($letters); echo " letters are these: "; foreach $letters as $letter) { echo "AB"; } echo ".";


Not sure where i have gone wrong.

Thanks in advance for help,

foreach -->( $letters as $letter) { echo "AB"; }

Missing the left parentheses of the foreach loop.

foreach ($letters as $letter) { echo "AB"; }

DOH! Thank you
