could nybody help me plz?

Is your file saved with a php extension?

If you have htm or html as the extension, it won't be sent to the php interpreter and will just be displayed as if it were html.

You can configure php to run in .html and .htm files.

Have you ensured that the PHP module / CGI Binary is loaded in to Apache?
