Please let me know why my answer to this task is wrong.

Thanks in advance. I think it is most likely a mistype.

$a = 5;
//Place your code below this comment
$isBoolean = true;
$isIdentical = ($isBoolean === "5");

Hey Jonathan,

You're super close to getting this, but you're comparing the wrong variable. You're currently comparing the variable isBoolean, but you want to compare the a variable.

$isIdentical = ($isBoolean === "5"); should then become $isIdentical = ($a === "5").

Hope this helps!

Thank you my code works now :)
