Java Java Basics Getting Started with Java IO

Can someone please explain to me what I'm doing wrong for this challenge?

It's asking me to print out on the screen "First name:", and the users first name.

IO.java
// I have imported java.io.Console for you.  It is a variable called console.
String firstName = console.readLine("first name");
String lastName = console.readLine("last name");
console.printf("%s:", firstName);

Thank you for your help.

It wants the words "First name:" and then the first name.

console.printf("First name: %s", firstName);
