Java Java Basics Getting Started with Java IO

I don't understand what this is asking me to do.

Declare a variable that is named the camel-cased version of "first name". Store the user's first name into this new variable using console.readLine.

// I have imported java.io.Console for you.  It is a variable called console.

Camel casing is a way of typing variable names without spaces. Camel-casing "first name" would result in something like this: firstName

console.readLine will take input from the user, so setting it equal to a variable will save that input inside that variable, like this:

String firstName = console.readLine("Name: ");
