Java Java Basics Perfecting the Prototype Looping until the value passes

I got the following message: Bummer! Did you use console.printf and to write out the formatted string with the response?

I want the code to output the message "Because you answered yes, you have passed the test!" and I am not sure why it will not.

// I have initialized a java.io.Console for you. It is in a variable named console.
boolean iDoNot;
boolean iDo;
String response;
  do {
    response = console.readLine("Do you understand do while loops?  ");
iDoNot =response.equals("No");
iDo = response.equals("yes");
if (iDo) {    
      console.printf("Because you said  yes, you passed the test!"); }
  } while(iDoNot);

String response = "";

  response = console.readLine("Do you understand do while loops?");

console.printf("Because you said %s, you passed the test!", response);
