Now replace <YOUR NAME> in the console.printf expression with the firstName variable using the string formatter?
I know the string variable is %s but when I change my name and enter the variable is giving me an error.
// I have setup a java.io.Console object for you named console String firstName = "Wilson" ; console.printf("Hello, my name is Wilson") ; console.printf("<Wilson> can code in Java") ;

Challenges are very picky. Try not to do anything it doesn't explicitly ask for. In your code you have an extra printf statement. I removed that statement and then edited your last line and it passes the challenge. Take a look at what it wants:
// I have setup a java.io.Console object for you named console String firstName = "Wilson" ; console.printf("%s can code in Java", firstName) ;
The format needs to be: printf("Hello, my name is %s", firstName);
