Java Java Basics Getting Started with Java Strings, Variables, and Formatting

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

I'm stuck, it's asking me to replace something, but what specifically is it?

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

Hi Jossue,

Your code is fine as is for task 3. For some reason it's not accepting the space you have after printf

Remove that space and your code should pass.
