String name = console.readLine("Your name"); String pastTenseVerb = console.readLine("Past tense verb");

console.printf("%s really %s this coding exercise.", name, pastTenseVerb);

Remember to place the formatting inside with the string literal, and place the variable separate from the string but in the same parenthesis.
