Java Java Basics Getting Started with Java Strings, Variables, and Formatting

what's wrong with is? Now replace your name with the firstName variable using the string formatter.

I tried so many times but didn't work

you have one specifier, so you need a corresponding variable with it. the variable you want to print is firstName. the output string needs to look like "Ahmed can code in Java!"

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