what I am doing wrong?


//Place your code below this comment

$colors[]= array();
$colors[] = "red";
$colors[] = "blue";
$colors[] = "green";

echo $colors[1];

$favorite_colors= array(
 'mike'=> "green",
  'jane'=> "blue",
  'chris'=> "red"

echo $favorite_colors->'mike';

I see two issues:

  • the statement assigning $favorite_colors is missing the semicolon at the end
  • the membership operator (->) is being used on that array instead of indexing with brackets ([])
