it wont accept my code

String firstName ="Ralph" ; console.printf ("%s can code java!");

// I have setup a java.io.Console object for you named console
String firstName = "Ralph";{     
console.printf ("%s Can code in Java!") firstName;

1 Answer

Try changing console.printf ("%s Can code in Java!") firstName; to console.printf ("%s can code in Java!", firstName);

You do not need the { and }.
