OK Tyrone, What Craig wants you to do is write out:

// Declare the variable which stores your name:
String firstName = "Tyrone";

//Print it out:
console.printf("%s can code in Java!", firstName);

Hope it helps!! ISAIAH S

A String needs to be contained within inverted commas, like "Tyrone".


Thanks!! ; )
