Don't understand the first part of this task.

I don't understand the first part of this task. What am i supposed to do?

ScrabblePlayer.java
public class ScrabblePlayer {
  // A String representing all of the tiles that this player has
  private String tiles;

  public ScrabblePlayer() {
    tiles = "";
  }

  public String getTiles() {
    return tiles;
  }

  public void addTile(char tile) {
    // TODO: Add the tile to tiles
    tile += tiles;

  }

  public boolean hasTile(char tile) {
    // TODO: Determine if user has the tile passed in
    return false;
  }

}

You have the right idea, and the right operator, but your terms are reversed. The item being added ("tile", singular) goes on the right side of the operator, and the string being added to ("tiles", plural) goes on the left:

    // TODO: Add the tile to tiles
    tiles += tile;
