Hi there, koltton fox! You're doing great, but you have a bit of a typo. But instead of it causing an error it causes a bit of an unexpected result. If you check the "Preview" you should see the problem. It doesn't contain "ACME", but only "E". The culprit is an extraneous semicolon at the beginning of your for loop.

You wrote:

 foreach ($letters as $value); {

But you meant to write:

 foreach ($letters as $value) {  // Note the removal of the semicolon between the closed parenthesis and open curly brace

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
