I need help

I have placed several errors in this challenge. To fix them you must remove the // to uncomment them and then correct the error.

Uncomment the first line and fix the error. If you do not see the error, click submit and view the Preview pane to view the compiler error.

FixMe.java
// Sting firstName = "Gordon";

// string lastName = "Sumner";

// console.printf("Hello %s", firstName)

// band = console.readLine("Which band?  ");

OK, in the first one the word Sting is misspelled; change it to String. Remember that you have to do it with the original format from before; it should go from looking like the first line to the second:

// Sting firstName = "Gordon";

String firstName = "Gordon";
  • so it gets uncommented and Sting gets changed to String.

Then proceed to do similarly to the other lines in the next parts of the challenge.

Hi Alan, The first part of the challenge is to work on the first line. Step One: Uncomment the line. Step Two: Look and see what could be wrong with this line of code (it could be a capitalization error, leaving off the semi-colon at the end of a line, a misspelling, or an undeclared data type). Then proceed with the rest of the lines in the following parts of the challenge. Don't forget to read the instructions well. If you check your work and it's not correct, there will be an error code that may be helpful.

Hope this helps!

Sting firstName = ("Alan");

string lastName = ("Alhamid");

console.printf("Alan %s", firstName, lastName)

console.readLine("what is your name? ");

is that correct

No, you just uncommented them all and changed them. Don't change them the way you did. Each line has something simple wrong with it as I stated in my previous message. Look for the four problems I mentioned, one of them is in each line (not in order, though). Don't put your info into anything here.
