    Default Just getting started!

    What is wrong with this line of code?

    System.out.println ( "Incorrect! " + firstAddend + " + " secondAddend + " = " + sum );

    firstAddend, secondAddend and sum are variables.

    Netbeans error is:

    ')' expected
    not a statement
    ';' expected
