Codecademy Learn Java tutorial walkthrough 6 white space

Java can ignore whitespace in code but whitespace and comment helps make the code more readable. Code is for computers to read but humans need to maintain it. Readable code, clean concise well annotated code, is an important developer best practice. During job interviews, good candidates are usually distinguished by their ability to solve the problem in a concise and well structured manner. 

This exercise required students to move
