Something is wrong with my associative array.

I saw a similar question about same code challenge and did what was suggested. Nevertheless, that did not work. Can anyone tell me exactly what is wrong with my array? Thanks.

index.php
<?php

//Place your code below this comment
$integer_one = 1;
$integer_two = 2;
$golden = 1.618;
$bool = true;
$colors = array('red', 'blue', 'green');

echo $colors [1]

$favorite_colors = array("mike" => "green", "jane" => "blue", "chris" => "yellow");

?>

It look ok to me but I'm not sure what kind of error you are getting. Can you provide us with what error you are getting or what isn't going right?

Could try

$favorite_colors = [
                                  "mike" => "green",
                                  "jane" => "blue",
                                 "chris" => "yellow"
                              ];

but they way you have it should work I am thinking :(

I found out what was wrong. I was missing the semicolon in the line above the associative array. the array was fine.
