Your code is correct, but they want you to put your echo statement in the same code block as your variable declaration. You currently have opened up a second code block to add your echo statement.

You have:

<?php $name = "Mike"; ?>

<?php echo $name ?>

You want:

    $name = "Mike";
    echo $name;

Also make sure to add your closing semi-colon after your echo statement!


Ok, Ill try that, thank you.
