Java Java Basics Using your New Tools Fix the Errors

On the fixme.java challenge, I do not understand the final problem. It shows band = console.readLine("Which band? ");

I have tried deleting "band =" and capitalizing. I'm not certain what the issue is. I'm learning this so bear with me. Thank you for your help.

String firstName = "Gordon";

String lastName = "Sumner";
String band = "band";
console.printf("Hello %s", firstName);

band = console.readLine("Which band?  ");

When you declare a string variable in java, you need to put String before your variable.

In this case, String band = ...

hope that helped you :)


That makes perfect sense. I just saw that band was a string variable. I was wondering why it was there but thank you.
