Java Java Basics Perfecting the Prototype Looping until the value passes

why is this "taking too long to run" what should i do differently?

and this is what it wants me to do. "Now continually prompt the user in a do while loop. The loop should continue running as long as the response is No. Don't forget to declare response outside of the do while loop."

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

you need to prompt in the loop. if you change the first line to just a declaration of the response variable, then inside the loop you don't need an if statement, you just set response to the prompt from task 1, and after the loop your while statement is ok. so now your code will be: declare response, do (prompt for an answer and store in response) while response equals no.

Hi James I didn't get you. Could you please elaborate "do (prompt for an answer and store in response) while response equals no."
