You should have my favorite flavor of ice cream in a variable named $flavor, and now it's time to display it to the scre


I have no idea what's wrong.... The preview looks good and right but I keep get errors all time.

include ("flavor.php");
$flavor = get_flavor();
echo "Randy's favorite flavor of ice cream is ".$flavor.".";

Hey Eitay,

Your code is correct, but (for some reason) you changed the name in the echo statement from "Hal's" to "Randy's". This is what is giving you the error. The code checker compares your code to a very specific value, so if you change a value that you weren't instructed to, it will throw an error. Just change that name back and you will be good to go.

Also, just a tip. While it isn't necessary, it is good practice to leave spaces around the concatenating periods. This just helps with code readability. Syntactically, both are correct... it's just more common to have spacing.

eg. Instead of

echo "Randy's favorite flavor of ice cream is ".$flavor.".";


echo "Randy's favorite flavor of ice cream is " . $flavor . ".";

Keep Coding! :dizzy:
