m not sure why you are using a function name firstisequaltosecond.... with string??? What theyre looking for is a simple if statement like:

String firstExample = "hello"; String secondExample = "hello"; String thirdExample = "HELLO";

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