What do I do??

For this question we are being told to use the String in the console. I am confused since I'm not sure how to make it work due to it having 3 errors each time, can someone help me for this since it could mean doing something like console printf(firstName, "can code in Java!").

// I have setup a java.io.Console object for you named console
String firstName = "Prithvi";
console printf("firstname can code in Java!");

You're really close!

Remember, you're calling a method from the console object, so use the dot operator, like so:

String firstName = "Prithvi";
console.printf("<FIRSTNAME> can code in Java!");   // watch that dot in between console and printf!

Thanks a lot for the help!
