I don't understand what is the problem with my code. can someone that succeeded doing this task show his code? thanks!

import android.os.Bundle;

public class FlightActivity extends AppCompatActivity {

    public int fuelLevel = 0;

    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

        // Add your code below!
      Intent intent = getIntent();
      fuelLevel = int getIntExtra("FUEL_LEVEL", 1);

fuelLevel = int getIntExtra("FUEL_LEVEL", 1); // the int keyword is the problem
fuelLevel =  getIntent().getIntExtra("FUEL_LEVEL", 1);

in java you can't put a int declaration after an equal sign, the getIntExtra method comes from the Intent object so you need to call getIntent first. Assuming you've added the extra correctly in the previous intent

fuelLevel = intent.getIntExtra("FUEL_LEVEL", 1);
