8 // On the line below, create your own associative array:
This is misleading. The code checker is NOT looking for an associative array, it is actually looking for just a plain old array.
Make a $myArray = array('a', 'b', 'c', 'd');
echo any value
make a for loop (NOT a foreach loop) that iterates through your array.
and if someone at codecademy would fix the comments in the code, that would be great because this seems to be a common problem....
