Help Equality.java task to is a bummer

what am I doing wrong

// I have imported a java.io.Console for you, it is named console. 
String firstExample = "hello";
String secondExample = "hello";
String thirdExample = "HELLO";

console.printf("first is equal to second");


if (firstExample.equalsIngnoreCase(thirdExample)){
console.printf("first and third are the same ignoring case"); 


1 Answer


you have a minor spelling here:

if (firstExample.equalsIngnoreCase(thirdExample)){

should be

if (firstExample.equalsIgnoreCase(thirdExample)){

Ignore, not Ingnore
