PHP PHP Basics Unit Converter Manipulating Numbers

stuck on second task of code challenge cover manipulating variables.

The second task asks you to add 5 to $integerOne and subtract 1 from $integerTwo. I have done that using var_dump. I checked the code in workspaces to ensure it is returning a value. However, the challenge says that I haven't changed the variable. Any ideas on what the problem is?


//Place your code below this comment
$integerOne = 1;
$integerTwo = 2;

Treehouse wants you to solve this problem in a very straightforward way, even if there are several solutions to this problem.


//Place your code below this comment $integerOne = 1; $integerTwo = 2;

$integerOne += 5; $integerTwo -= 1;

$floatOne = 1.5;

echo $integerOne * $floatOne;


I do not have time to explain.

Thank you for your help. It was really bugging me that the var_dump wasn't working. I guess there was an easier way to solve the problem than I was using.

You are welcome! : )
