Java Java Basics Getting Started with Java IO

I do not know what to do!!!

It is telling me to use first name to input the user's name.

// I have imported java.io.Console for you.  It is a variable called console.
String firstName = console.readLine("Jeremi");
String lastName = console.readLine("Samuel");
console.printf("First Name", %s);

When the challenge says "store the user's name..." it means the user will provide the name, not you in the code. When the following runs, it will read whatever the user types in and store it in firstName, and (after an Enter) whatever the user types in will be stored in lastName:

String firstName = console.readLine();
String lastName = console.readLine();
console.printf("First name: %s", firstName);
console.printf("Last name: %s", lastName);
