What is wrong with my code?

I can't figure out what is wrong with my code

// I have imported a java.io.Console for you, it is named console. 
String firstExample = "hello";
String secondExample = "hello";
String thirdExample = "HELLO";

   console.printf("first and third are the same ignoring case");

Hi Ulfina,
It's nothing wrong with your code, but you seem to have gotten rid of your solution to the first task. This is why you are not getting past the second task. Insert your old solution along with your new.

The challenge is to compare the 1st and 2nd strings, however, you are comparing 1st and 3rd

   console.printf("first is equal to second");
