The first task in the challenge is to create a private field named barCount. There are a couple example fields in the code already. try imitating them to accomplish the challenge. I've annotated the code below to get you started.

class GoKart {
  public static final int MAX_BARS = 8; //<-- this is a private field that can (and currently does)store an integer named MAX_BARS and is set to 8.
  private String color; //<-- this is a private field that can (and currently doesn't) store a String value but has no set value yet. 
//put your new private field named barCount below this comment


  public GoKart(String color) {
    this.color = color;
  }

  public String getColor() {
    return color;
  }
}
