One last question for now regarding coding that I'm confused about:


style="color:rgb(55,71,79);">Write an expression to detect that the first character of userInput matches firstLetter."

I'm confused because my previous answer was to do somthing like "if (String userInput == car firstLetter---" but

I was told you cant cross '==' with two different expressions..

import java.util.Scanner;

public class CharMatching {

  public static void main (String [] args) {

   Scanner scnr = new Scanner(;

   String userInput;

   char firstLetter;

   userInput = scnr.nextLine();

   firstLetter = scnr.nextLine().charAt(0);

   if (/* Your solution goes here */) {

     System.out.println("Found match: " + firstLetter);


   else {

     System.out.println("No match: " + firstLetter);
