There are a couple of small problems with your code. The syntax errors are coming from missed semi colons at the end of lines 10, 12, 16 and 18.At the end of line 18 there is also an extra " ' " which needs removed. Finally for it to pass you need some extra spaces in your text strings so that the numbers do not run into the text.

<?php
$studentOneName = 'Dave';
$studentOneGPA = 3.8;

$studentTwoName = 'Treasure';
$studentTwoGPA = 4.0;

//Place your code below this comment
if ($studentOneGPA == 4.0) {
  echo $studentOneName . " made the Honor Roll ";
} else {
  echo $studentOneName . " has a GPA of " . $studentOneGPA;
}

if ($studentTwoGPA == 4.0) {
  echo $studentTwoName . " made the Honor Roll ";
} else {
  echo $studentTwoName . " has a GPA of " . $studentTwoGPA;
}

?>

thanks a lot @Jake Milburn
