    Default Use a method to find out if any last name is "Doe".

    I need to use a method to find out if any last name is "Doe". Use a loop statement to achieve this. Print out their full names.

    Here is the code that I have written. It works but I not sure that it addresses the question. Need help. Thanks in advance.

    class LastNameisDoe {
    public static void main(String args[]) {
    String s;

    for(int i=0; i < 1; i++) {
    s = "Doe";
    System.out.print(s);


    s = " John Doe";

    System.out.print(s + " ");
    }
    }
    }

    find out if any last name is "Doe"
    First you need to find the "last name". Given a String with a name, how do you find the "last" name?
    When you get the last name, Then compare it to "Doe"
