Java Java Basics Perfecting the Prototype String Equality

I can't find the problem here to complete the challenge !

The question and the bummer are written as comments i the code.

/* I have imported a java.io.Console for you, it is named console. 

/* Add another if statement that checks if the firstExample is equal
ignoring case to thirdExample. If it, is print out "first and third are the same ignoring case".*/

String firstExample = "hello";
String secondExample = "hello";
String thirdExample = "HELLO";

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

 /*Bummer! Make sure you are using `equalsIgnoreCase` on the `firstExample` variable and use `console.printf`*/

You're right. That was helpful. Thanks Philip Schultz :D

What happened to your original if statement that checks if the firstExample is equal to the secoundExample? I think it is looking for both if statements.
