Hi Glen. Let's have a look at your last 2 lines:

Int Integer =  spaceship.getNumPassengers().toSring();
  • The primitive type is int (all lowercase), not Int.
  • Integer is the name of the wrapper class for int in the Android framework, so you cannot name your variable that way. Remember that variable names should start with a lowercase, or the system will read it as a class. You could name it integer (lowercase) but it's best practice to pick descriptive names for your variables. So you could call it numPassengers or numberPassengers for example.
  • You do not need to call .toString() here as numPassengers (or whatever you decided to call it) is an integer (int), not a string.
passengersField.setText(Integer.toString(spaceship.getNumpassengers()));

You just have a small typo here: it's .getNumPassengers() (capital P).

Hope that helps :)
