You're on the right track. I suggest having a quick review on how to format the syntax for a
printf statement. You can review the formatting in this video. Craig discusses it starting at the 5:00 minute mark. Hint: It's really important to watch where the comma, quotation marks and parenthesis go.
Keep Coding! :)
