You're never "stuck". You can skip a challenge (or any course step) by clicking on the next circle on the progress bar that goes across the top of the page. The current page is represented by the circle with the ring around it.

But if you'd like to give this one another shot, here's some hints:

  • you won't need "readLine" again in task 3
  • you also won't be making an assignment ("=")
  • the argument passed to "printf" will need to combine the words in quotes with the variable name
