Why does the following happen: 'It looks like Task 1 is no longer passing' When I check my code for step 7?

When I complete The associative array in step 7 I get the error above. I've tried working through the steps three times but this happens each time. I not sure how the associative arrays causes issues for the first task.

index.php
<?php

//Place your code below this comment
$integer_one = 1;
$integer_two = 2;
$golden = 1.618;
$bool = TRUE;
$colors = array('red', 'blue', 'green');
echo $colors[1];
$favorite_colors = array(
    'mike' => 'green'
    'jane' => 'blue'
    'chris' => 'yellow'
  );



?>

You have a syntax error in your code around the $favorite_colors definition. Array elements must be separated with a , in PHP. The valid code for that would look like:

<?php
// Place your code below this comment
$integer_one = 1;
$integer_two = 2;
$golden = 1.618;
$bool = TRUE;
$colors = array('red', 'blue', 'green');
echo $colors[1];
$favorite_colors = array(
    'mike' => 'green',
    'jane' => 'blue',
    'chris' => 'yellow'
);

No problem, sometimes all it takes are some fresh eyes on the problem :)
