Java Java Basics Perfecting the Prototype String Equality

what did i do wrong?

I can't fint the error!

Challenge Task 2 of 2

Add another if statement that checks if the firstExample is equal ignoring case to thirdExample. If it, is print out "first and third are the same ignoring case".

Bummer: Make sure you are using equalsIgnoreCase on the firstExample variable and use console.printf

Equality.java
// I have imported a java.io.Console for you, it is named console. 
String firstExample = "hello";
String secondExample = "hello";
String thirdExample = "HELLO";
if (firstExample.equalsIgnoreCase(thirdExample)) {
  console.printf("first and third are the same ignoring case");
}

You are correct, but since you removed the code from the previous task, the code challenge won't let you pass

Thank you :)
