Hi there,

  • Each variable initialization needs its own line. This challenge only asks us to initialize one variable, so that makes things a little easier for us.
  • Generally speaking, the syntactical order of a Java variable initialization statement is: 1) The data type of the variable, 2) The name of the variable, 3) The assignment operator (=), and 4) the value of the variable, along with a semicolon to symbolize the end of the statement.
String favoriteColor = "yellow";

So, String is the data type of the variable, favoriteColor is the name of the variable, we include the assignment operator to assign a value to the variable, and then we added your favorite color, yellow, in quotes (since our value is a String), along with the semicolon to terminate the statement.

Hope this helps.

nice thank u i understood very well
