Hi,
Trying to create a variable value to use further down in my code. I'm not sure how to express this properly. Currently I get an error:
Syntax error, unexpected ','
How do I get around that?
$sortby = DB::raw('used_vehicles.vehicle_price - used_vehicles.discount'), 'ASC';

Maybe try this... Moved closing parenthesis:
$sortby = DB::raw('used_vehicles.vehicle_price - used_vehicles.discount', 'ASC');
