the code I entered looks correct but the when it is submitted it is not accepted

the code is not accepted as answer

// I have initialized a java.io.Console for you. It is in a variable named console.// I have initialized a java.io.Console for you. It is in a variable named console.
String inputFromUser;
String response;

do {
inputFromUser = console.readLine("Do you understand do while loops?  ");
response = inputFromUser;
console.printf("Because you said " + response + ", you passed the test!");

1 Answer

The challenge is expecting console.printf to be passed a formatted string, such as console.printf("%s", response), instead of using string concatenation.

:information_source: You also don't need the extra variable "inputFromUser". Everything can be done using just "response".
