//question 1
String firstName = "Noel";

//question 2
console.printf("Noel can code in Java!");

//question 3, replace the 2 with 3
console.printf("%s can code in Java!", firstName );

//why the below 2, take it off
console.printf("Hello, my name is %s\n", firstName);
console.printf("%s is learning how to write Java\n", firstName);

//note, you have to only action straight to the question
