On slide 137, you say that: char let2 = '97'; is legal. AFAIK, it is not legal. You can not store two characters (9 and 7) in a char. I tested on repl.it and it does not work.

Michael - Thank you for bringing this example to our attention. We will modify this example to show how characters in Java can refer to ASCII chart references as well as single characters because you are correct, the char data type can only hold one character. It will be corrected and reposted shortly. - Kate
