PHP PHP Basics Daily Exercise Program Conditionals

Works in workspace but not in quiz.

This code works in my workspace but the challenge area says I need to test that student one's GPA is equal to 4.0.

I copied the code from the challange area to my workspace without any changes.

$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 ' . $studentOneGPA; }

If ($studentTwoGPA == 4.0) { echo $studentTwoName . ' made the Honor Roll'; } else { echo $studentTwoName . ' has a GPA of ' . $studentTwoGPA; }

index.php
<?php
$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;
}
?>

Very interesting, the issue is the capital "I" on you if statements. Try a lower case "i" and it should pass. My local php and phpStorm handle it fine, but I guess the challenge processor doesn't like it.

You capitalized ‘if’ on both conditionals.

Thanks for your help. Need to keep my languages straight.
