Hi again,

you misplaced the curly bracket:

int numberOfPeople = 3;// } deleted
if (numberOfPeople <3)  } // <----moved here
console.printf("Your table is ready");


Your correction is wrong. The first curly bracket should be the opening one, not the closing. With this you have two closing curly brackets!

And the if-statement should check if numberOfPeople is less than 4. In your code above 3 people are provided, not 4 as asked.

int numberOfPeople = 3;

if ( numberOfPeople < 4) {
  console.printf("Your table is ready");
  System.exit(0); // Last task...
