I must have missed something...

What am I missing?

// I have imported java.io.Console for you.  It is a variable called console.
String firstName = console.readLine ("Joshua  ");
String lastName = console.readLine ("Lowell  ");
console.printf ("First name: %s");

Using the console's printf method, display a message that says, "First name: ", followed by the first name that the user has entered.

Try this:

```String firstName = console.readLine("Joshua"); String lastName = console.readLine ("Lowell"); console.printf("First name: %s", lastName);

Like this you tell the printf function to replace the %s with lastName
