Challenge Task 1 of 2

Add an if statement that checks to see if firstExample is equal to secondExample. If it is, print out "first is equal to second".


1 Answer

Depending on what type of data types firstExample and secondExample are:

if (firstExample == secondExample) { System.out.println("first is equal to second"); }


if (firstExample.equals(secondExample)) { System.out.println("first is equal to second"); }
