Why it saying wrong output?

can anyone help me to find out what is wrong in this code thanks

Check if each student has a GPA of 4.0. If the student has a GPA of 4.0, use the student's name variable to display "NAME made the Honor Roll". If not, use the variable to display "NAME has a GPA of GPA".

index.php
<?php
$studentOneName = 'Dave';
$studentOneGPA = 3.8;

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

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

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

?>

I believe the issue is that you are not supplying the variable $studentOneGPA / $studentTwoGPA in your echo function.

Instead of:

echo "$studentOneName has a GPA of GPA";

you should write:

echo "$studentOneName has a GPA of $studentOneGPA";

and do the same for studentTwo.
