PHP PHP Arrays and Control Structures PHP Arrays Multidimensional Arrays

What multi-dimensional array format should I use?

Do not know the format the exercise is looking for.

Used format the video is using and several variations without success.

//edit this array
//$contacts = array('Alena Holligan', 'Dave McFarland', 'Treasure Porth', 'Andrew Chalkley');
$contacts[] = [
  'name' => 'Alena holligan',
$contacts[] = [
  'name' => 'Dave McFarland',
$contacts[] = [
  'name' => 'Treasure Porth',
$contacts[] = [
  'name' => 'Andrew Chalkley',
echo "<ul>\n";
//$contacts[0] will return 'Alena Holligan' in our simple array of names.
echo "<li>Alena Holligan : alena.holligan@teamtreehouse.com</li>\n";
echo "<li>Dave McFarland : dave.mcfarland@teamtreehouse.com</li>\n";
echo "<li>Treasure Porth : treasure.porth@teamtreehouse.com</li>\n";
echo "<li>Andrew Chalkley : andrew.chalkley@teamtreehouse.com</li>\n";
echo "</ul>\n";

You have to use it like below:

$contacts = array( ['name' => 'some Name', 'email' => 'some Email'], ['name' => 'some Name', 'email' => 'some Email'], ['name' => 'some Name', 'email' => 'some Email'], ['name' => 'some Name', 'email' => 'some Email'], );
