why is this not working

Why is this not working? I checked over the code and cant find anything wrong.

$studentOneName = 'Dave';
$studentOneGPA = 3.8;

$studentTwoName = 'Treasure';
$studentTwoGPA = 4.0;

//Place your code below this comment
if ($studentOneGpa === 4.0){
  echo "$studentOneName made the Honor Roll";
} else {
  echo "$studentOneName has a GPA of $studentOneGpa";

if ($studentTwoGpa === 4.0){
  echo "$studentTwoName made the Honor Roll";
} else {
  echo "$studentTwoName has a GPA of $studentTwoGpa";

The PA in your GPA variables is uppercase. However in your if and echo statements you have it lowercase. If you were to run your code in a workspace you would see errors that studentOneGpa and studentTwoGpa are undefined.
