why is this code not passing?

I check out the output with different values, and it outputs the correct output.

$checker = new Palprimechecker();
$checker->number = 17;

echo "The number " .$checker->number. " ";

if ($checker -> isPalprime()) {
  echo "is ";
} else {
  echo "is not";

echo " a palprime";


I was missing the . echo " a palprime.";

I think you are failing because you have a space after "is" in the if part of the if/else statement. You also don't finish the sentence with a period ( a palprime.).
