Java Java Objects (Retired) Creating the MVP For Each Loop

eror with mHand.toCharrArray

So back to that ScrabblePlayer. I found that it's not enough to know if they just have a tile of a specific character. We need to know how many they actually have. Can you please add a method called getTileCount that uses the for each loop you just learned to loop through the characters and increment a counter if it matches? Return the count, please, thanks!

I keep getting an error with (char letter: mHand.toCharrArray()): it says can't find sign with an arrow pointing at the dot between d.t

public class ScrabblePlayer {
  private String mHand;

  public ScrabblePlayer() {
    mHand = "";

  public String getHand() {
   return mHand;

  public void addTile(char tile) {
    // Adds the tile to the hand of the player
    mHand += tile;

  public boolean hasTile(char tile) {
   return mHand.indexOf(tile) > -1;

  public int getTileCount(char tile) {
    int counter = 0;
    for(char letter: mHand.toCharrArray()) {
      if (letter==tile) {
    return counter;

There should be one 'r' in toCharArray() method.
