while loop condition

keeps saying my syntax operator is incorrect

Example.java
// I have initialized a java.io.Console for you. It is in a variable named console.
String response = console.readLine("Do you understand do while loops?");
while (response == response.equalsIgnoreCase("no")){
  console.readLine(response);
}

response.equalsIgnoreCase("no") is already a boolean value, so you don't need to compare it to response. Try removing response == from the while condition and setting a value for response within the while loop.

You could convert your code into a do while loop instead of a while loop, but the challenge does not check this.
