String Manipulation - Task 3


I'm not sure why this isn't parsing - any suggestions?


//Place your code below this comment

$firstName = 'Rasmus';
$lastName = 'Lerdorf';

$fullName = $firstName . ' ' . $lastName;

echo $fullName . "/n";

Everything is correct except you ended up using "/n" instead of "\n" which will end up displaying that as a string to the output. (Note: Also will display it as a string if its not in double quotes for new lines)

Your outcome: "Rasmus Lerdorf was the original creator of PHP./n"

Expected outcome: "Rasmus Lerdorf was the original creator of PHP."



// Users First Name //
$firstName = "Rasmus";

// Users Last Name //
$lastName = "Lerdorf";

// Users Full Name //
$fullName = $firstName . " " . $lastName;

// Display Outcome //
echo $fullName. " was the original creator of PHP.\n";
