lastName challenge


I'm having trouble passing task 4 of this challenge. It says "did you forget to pass the last name parameter function to the printf function?"

Must be missing something, but I passed task 3 which was the same thing for firstName funtion, so not sure what I've don't differently?



// I have imported java.io.Console for you.  It is a variable called console.
String firstName = console.readLine("Hi what is your name?  ");
console.printf("Hi my first name is %s\n", firstName);
console.printf("%s is learning Java\n", firstName);
String lastName = console.readLine("Hi what is your last name?  "); 
console.printf("My last name is Hoffman", lastName); 
console.printf("First name is %s", firstName);
console.printf("Last name is %s", lastName);
