Stuck on Concantenation

It says I have the variable set but I haven't got the spacing correct, I think it looks correct...

concatenation.php
<?php

$firstName = "Mike";
$middleName = "the";
$lastName = "Frog";
$fullName = $fullName . " " . $firstName . " " . $middleName . " " .$lastName;

echo "The designer at Shirts 4 Mike shirts is named ____";

?>

You are calling the $fullName variable inside $fullName where is not defined yet and in your echo you forgot to include the $fullName. This should work:

<?php

$firstName = "Mike";
$middleName = "the";
$lastName = "Frog";
$fullName = $firstName . " " . $middleName . " " .$lastName;

echo "The designer at Shirts 4 Mike shirts is named $fullName";

?>
