First thing you need to remember is when declaring a string and assigning it a value you need to put the value in quotes. Ex. String name = "Bob"; so for this assignment you are looking at something similar to String name = "Bob"; note: do not forget to capitalize String and put what you assigned name as in quotes with a semicolon at the end System.out.println(name); note: name will be replaced automatically with Bob when program is ran because we assigned it with "Bob in this case.
