I assume you're on Challenge Task 2 of 3. Two things:

1) you need to pass in the variable firstName as another argument, which the printf function will interpolate into the string at the spot marked by %s.

2) you need to use the string they're asking for "...can code in Java!".

console.printf("%s can code in Java!", firstName);
