Java Java Basics Getting Started with Java IO

I cannot Declare another variable, naming this one the camel-cased version of "last name". I got the first variable

I declared the first line of text including [String firstName = console.readLine("what is your name? ");] but for some reason I cannot get the next question stating for the last name. Can someone explain how to get it so I can pass this part of the exercise?

IO.java
// I have imported java.io.Console for you.  It is a variable called console.
String firstName = console.readLine("what is your last name  ?");

This worked for me -

String firstName = console.readLine("what is your last name?");

Remove the extra spaces.

Thank you! I actually figured it out a few min after posting this and looking at my errors. I appreciate you helping me though!!
