Can anyone help me with this question in the exercise?

I am not sure how to re word the exercise, what should be the next step?

Thank you.

Name.java
// I have setup a java.io.Console object for you named console
String firstName = "Avery";
console.printf("Avery can code in Java!");

Hi Avery Pierce

You're going in the right direction, and that code will output the desired result; however, this challenge want you to use format specifiers to place your name into that string (so not hardcoded in). Have a quick review of the video starting at the 5:00 mark. This is where Craig introduces this subject.

Nice work! :) :dizzy:
