What is the parameter to the printf function?

It's asking "Did you forget to pass the firstName parameter to the printf function?" and I can't seem to find the mistake in line 3 where it's asking me to do it

IO.java
// I have imported java.io.Console for you.  It is a variable called console.
String firstName = "Ilona";
   console.printf("Firstname: %s/n", firstName); 
   console.readLine("%s/n, firstName");
String lastName = "Sorokina";
   console.readLine("%s/n, lastName");

You put the quote int the wrong place:

console.readLine("%s/n", firstName);

You have entered:

console.readLine("%s/n, firstName");

But firstName should be outside the quotation marks:

console.readLine("%s/n", firstName);
