I keep failing this code challenge but I feel my code is correct

I wrote the code below for the second Equality code challenge. It looks correct to me but the system keeps returning a fail.

I honestly cant figure out what's wrong. Please help

Equality.java
// I have imported a java.io.Console for you, it is named console. 
String firstExample = "hello";
String secondExample = "hello";
String thirdExample = "HELLO";

if(firstExample.equalsIgnoreCase(thirdExample)){
    console.printf("first and third are the same ignoring case");
}

Maybe you shouldn't remove the

if(firstExample.equals(secondExample)) {
  console.printf("first is equal to second");
}

Because that works fine for me (I mean your code), but I left the first task's answer.

An answer would be, leave the code from the first challenge.
