what am i doing wrong

i keep getting an error for console.printf("mike);...what am i doing wrong here

Name.java
// I have setup a java.io.Console object for you named console
String firstName = "Mike";
console.printf("Mike");

1 Answer

For the second task, the challenge is expecting something like console.printf("Mike can code in Java!"); instead of console.printf("Mike");
