2) Display the following string to the screen.

Rasmus Lerdorf was the original creator of PHP.

3) Use an escape character to add a newline to the end of the string.


//Place your code below this comment
$firstName = "Rasmus";
$lastName = "Lerdorf";
$fullName = $firstName  . $lastName  . "was the original creator of PHP.\n" ;

You are on the right track. The only part missing is displaying the string to the screen. In place of the last line in your code, try this:

echo $firstName  . $lastName  . "was the original creator of PHP.\n";
