PHP Quiz

Hi! I'm taking a PHP quiz that asks this question:

Create a new variable name $isIdentical. Compare the variable $a as identical (equal AND of the same type) as the string "5" and assign the results to $isIdentical.

My code is:

<?php $a = 5; //Place your code below this comment $isBoolean = true; $a = 5; $isIdentical = 5; $var_dump($a === 5); ?>

I keep getting a notification that my answer is wrong. I've tried several times. Would someone mind helping me? It is GREATLY appreciated! Thanks!!

index.php
<?php
$a = 5;
//Place your code below this comment

?>

1 Answer

The challenge wants you to assign the result to $isIdentical.

$isIdentical = $a === "5";
