Java basics - do while challenge.

I'm kind of stuck here. How should i change the code to make this right?

Markus

Example.java
// I have initialized a java.io.Console for you. It is in a variable named console.
String response;
boolean invalid;
do{
response = console.readLine("Do you understand do while loops?");
invalid = (response.equalsIgnoreCase("no"));
  if (invalid); {
    console.printf("Wrong answer, try again");
  }
} while (invalid);
console.printf("Because you said yes, you passed the test!", response);

I found out what to do.

I had you change ''yes'' with "%s". So the edited code looks like this

console.printf("Because you said %s, you passed the test!", response);

It should look something like this:

 String response = console.readLine("Do you understand do while loops?");
do{
  response = console.readLine("Do you understand do while loops?");

}while(response.equals("No"));

console.printf("Because you said %s, you passed the test!", response);
