Java Java Basics Perfecting the Prototype String Equality

Hey anyone, please i need help i thought i was doing the right thing here but apparently the JVM or the editor doesn't.

i need to use the .equalsIgnoringCase(String) method in this for loop but i need help,

Equality.java
// I have imported a java.io.Console for you, it is named console. 
String firstExample = "hello";
String secondExample = "hello";
if(firstExample.equals(secondExample)){
  console.printf("first is equals to second");
}
String thirdExample = "HELLO";
if(firstExample.equalsIgnoringCase(thirdExample)){
  console.printf("first and third are the same ignoring case");
}
