I am trying to figure out why the output displays everything BUT the actual name?
<?php //Place your code below this comment $firstName = "Rasmus"; $lastName = "Lerdorf"; $fullName = $firstName + $lastName; $fullName .= ' was the original creator of PHP'; $fullName = $fullName . "\n"; echo $fullName ?>
The concatenation operator in PHP is . (period)
$fullName = $firstName + $lastName;
$fullName = $firstName . ' ' . $lastName;
