I re-did the challenge, and this code should work, but it's not:

// I've imported java.io.Console for you.  It is stored in a variable called console for you.

//task 1:
String name = console.readLine("Enter a name:  ");

//task 2:
String pastTenseVerb = console.readLine("Enter a past tense verb:  ");

//task 3:
console.readLine("%s really %s this coding exercise", name, pastTenseVerb);

All it's saying is: ':heavy_multiplication_x:Bummer! Looks like you forgot to use the %s formatter'.

This was the task:

Challenge Task 3 of 3

Output a sentence that takes both the name and past tense verb using a single statement. It should look like this: name really past tense verb this coding exercise.

Can you add a link to the challenge, please, Isaiah?

It isn't a readLine, is it? You're outputting, not inputting?


Thanks, I changed it to printf, and it worked.

Awesome! Good work!
