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

I have no idea what I am doing wrong with my code. I am in Challenge Task 3 of 3 in Java Basics.

Please tell me what I am doing wrong

QUESTION: Now replace <YOUR NAME> in the console.printf expression with the firstName variable using the string formatter. It says I must "keep my printf statement intact"

Name.java
// I have setup a java.io.Console object for you named console
String firstName = "Joe";
console.printf ("%s can code in Java!", firstName);

Task 3 is having an issue with the space that you have after printf and before (

You should pass after removing that space. The staff have been notified of the problem.

Thank you for the answer!
