Hi The challenge asks you to put make it write out "<YOUR NAME> can code in Java!"
but you wrote your code like console.printf("My name is %s",firstName);
so just get rid of "My name is" and put " can code in Java!"

In addition to Thayer Y's answer, I'd point out that in these challenges it's important to not do anything not explicitly asked for by the challenge. You've set up a class and a main function and imported something. None of these were asked for and have already been provided by the challenge. They very literally only want the lines asked for. Also, as Thayer points out, you would be printing the incorrect string.

Hope this helps! :sparkles:

still showing error.

i understand now..i just have to write the particular code what they are asking,not full program.
