Create an integer that stores "number of people" ( Use camel case). Set the value to 3. - don't understand the question.

Create an integer that stores "number of people" ( Use camel case). Set the value to 3. I don't understand the question.

int = numberOfPeople = ("3");

I am a beginner myself as well, but the proper form should be: java int numberOfPeople = 3; The numberOfPeople is the name of the variable. You don't need an = after int :) Camel case means that every separate word, where you would have a space gets a capital letter. Eg. instead "number of people" you write "numberOfPeople".

drop the first = sign, the quotes around 3 and the () around 3. all you need to declare and initialize an integer in java is int variableName = 45; or whatever value you need.
