WriteLine

Declaring variable "firstName", having trouble with WriteLine... var firstName = Console.ReadLine(); Console.WriteLine(var firstName);

CodeChallenge.cs
var firstName = Console.ReadLine();
Console.WriteLine(var firstName);

var firstName = Console.ReadLine();

Console.WriteLine(firstName);

In your WriteLine() statement you don't need the var in there, you only need to declare the variable once (outside the Console.WriteLine()).
