In the console.printf you have to write the message that the challenge post "<YOUR NAME> can code in Java!"

// I have setup a java.io.Console object for you named console
String firstName = "Name";
console.printf("<YOUR NAME> can code in Java!"); // here

then in the 3 part change the "<YOUR NAME>" to "%s"

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