Java Java Basics Getting Started with Java IO

Cant format String (Java)

Its telling me if i forgot to pass firstName into the parameters, but I did.

IO.java
// I have imported java.io.Console for you.  It is a variable called console.

String firstName = "john";

console.readLine(firstName);

String lastName = "doe";
console.readLine(lastName);

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

The challenge should have stopped you at task 1. In task 1 you are to store the result of console.readLine() using the variable firstName. So it should look something like this:

String firstName = console.readLine("Enter first name: ")

Do the same for task 2. Then your code for task 3 should pass.
