Can someone help me with whats wrong with this outline?

Im not quite sure how do while loop is written..i dont know whats wrong with what i have down?

// I have initialized a java.io.Console for you. It is in a variable named console.
String response = console.readLine("Do you understand while loops?");
  console.printf("Do you understand while loops?");
                  if (response.equals no);

A do while loop is written in the form

do {

} while (condition);

To avoid getting an infinite loop, try updating the value of response inside the do block so that the while condition can become false.

To determine if the value of response is the string "no", you can use response.equals("no") with the word no in quotes and surrounded by parentheses. However, the challenge is expecting response to be compared to the string "No" instead.
