PHP PHP Basics Daily Exercise Program Conditionals

The Error message is telling me Use the variables to display the message... I'm using the "echo" keyword. What's wrong??

Please help me figure out what I missed here.

index.php
<?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 ;
}

?>

It looks like your main problem is your use of capitalization. $studentTwoName != $StudentTwoName, in other words, your variables are not matching up. Remove the capital S from all of your varibles.

Also, it may be possible that you do not need to use ===, only == should work as well.

<?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 ;
}

?>

nevermind I figured it out thanks Alex!

So I corrected my variables and changed my operator to == and now the error message is saying "INCORRECT OUTPUT" Help!
