// Java code to illustrate indexOf()
import java.io.*;
import java.util.LinkedList;
  
public class LinkedListDemo {
   public static void main(String args[]) {
  
      // Creating an empty LinkedList
      LinkedList<String> list = new LinkedList<String>();
  
      // Use add() method to add elements in the list
      list.add("Geeks");
      list.add("for");
      list.add("Geeks");
      list.add("10");
      list.add("20");
  
      // Displaying the list
      System.out.println("LinkedList:" + list);
        
      // The first position of an element 
      // is returned
      System.out.println("The first occurrence of Geeks is at index:" 
                                              + list.indexOf("Geeks"));
      System.out.println("The first occurrence of 10 is at index: "  
                                               + list.indexOf("10"));
  
   }
