Can't run PHP file with apache2

I want to set up php on my machine but I can't make it work. This is what I did:

  1. I downloaded php with sudo apt-get php
  2. Installed Apache sudo apt install apache2
  3. Resterted server sudo service apache2 restart
  4. Both http://localhost/ and php -v work as the should

But when I try to run a basic php file it doesn't work. For example in /var/www/html I have following test.html file:

<meta charset="UTF-8">
<body bgcolor="white">

echo '<p> HEY </p>';


But when I type in my browser http://localhost/test.html I get some garbage:

'; ?>

What am I doing wrong?

what's your interest
