Java Java Basics Using your New Tools Multiple Format Strings

I don't see the error here o.O

String name = console.readLine("What is your name: "); String pastTenseVerb = console.readLine("Name a verb in past tense: "); console.printf("%s really %s this coding exercise."name, pastTenseVerb);

Multiple.java
// I've imported java.io.Console for you.  It is stored in a variable called console for you.
String name = console.readLine("What is your name:  ");
String pastTenseVerb = console.readLine("Name a verb in past tense: ");
console.printf(" %s really %s this coding exercise."name, pastTenseVerb);

OMG! Thank you!

Assuming this is a exact copy of what you tried, you are missing a comma on the last line. You need one before the variable name. Hope that helps
