Java Java Basics Getting Started with Java Strings, Variables, and Formatting

I could not understand how to write the full code in the editor????

How can i complete this challenge????

// I have setup a java.io.Console object for you named console
Console console = system.console();
string firstname = "Naeem";
console.printf("My name is %s",firstname);

First of all you have initialized variable "console" - so you do not need do it second time. Moreover class usually starts with capital letter - so please replace your "string" with "String".

The final code should looks like:

String firstName = "YourFirstName";
console.printf("%s can code in Java",firstName);

Thanks a lot buddy
