# what's wrong with my code?

```function mimic_array_sum(\$array) {

\$sum = 0;
foreach(\$array as \$element) {
\$sum = \$sum + 1;
}
return \$sum;
}

\$palindromic_primes = array(11, 757, 16361);
\$sum = mimic_array_sum(\$palindromic_primes);
echo \$sum;

?>
```

This is everything in the code editor when I just passed it again.

Question 2

```    <?php

function mimic_array_sum(\$array) {

\$sum = 0;
foreach(\$array as \$element) {
\$sum = \$sum + \$element; // Not 1
}
return \$sum;
}

\$palindromic_primes = array(11, 757, 16361);

?>
```

Question 3

```    <?php

function mimic_array_sum(\$array) {

\$sum = 0;
foreach(\$array as \$element) {
\$sum = \$sum + \$element; // Not 1
}
return \$sum;
}

\$palindromic_primes = array(11, 757, 16361);
\$sum = mimic_array_sum(\$palindromic_primes);
echo \$sum;

?>
```

Took me a while but it should be this think you must have had a momentary lapse in concentration

```     function mimic_array_sum(\$array) {

\$sum = 0;
foreach(\$array as \$element) {
\$sum = \$sum + \$element; // Not 1
}
return \$sum;
}
```

still not working.....I changed it to \$sum = \$sum + \$element

Thank you Adam! Now it worked. I think I was getting ahead of myself, and I was doing question 3 in question 2, and I think that's the reason it wasn't going through.

I concur :)

Now its solved click best answer and others can see then.

Good Luck!
