Not sure what I am supposed to do. Please help.

Challenge Task 3 of 3

Now replace <YOUR NAME> in the console.printf expression with the firstName variable using the string formatter.

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

Hey Hector,

There is technically nothing wrong with your code. However, for some reason, the code checker for the final task sees the space between the printf and the opening parenthesis as an error (though it really isn't).

Just delete that space and the task will pass.

Tagging Craig Dennis for a fix please.

Keep Coding! :) :dizzy:

And just a note...

"your name" really should be your actual name. :) But either will work, as the checker is just looking for a string.

Thanks Jason Anders ! This is now working with a space...I swear I fixed this before, must've been in two tests. Thanks!
