Help with Contructors

I've watched the video atleast 10x and tried multiple different ways to solve this problem. Can someone please walk me through how they want this done. I'm completely out of ideas

Please create a new GoKart object. As you know it takes a single parameter, color. Bummer! There is a compiler error. Please click on preview to view your syntax errors! Preview Recheck work Example.java

1 public class Example { 2

3 public static void main(String[] args) { 4 System.out.println("We are going to create a GoKart"); 5

6 } 7 }

public class Example {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        System.out.println("We are going to create a GoKart");

Hey Jamar, So the challenge is to make an object using your GoKart class. To do you must do the following:

GoKart kart = new GoKart("Red");

Thus you must first call the class name (GoKart), then name your object (kart). Then you assign (=) it, new GoKart(); The reason why we use the string "red" is because you are calling the constructor which takes the string and assigns it to your class member variable (the private string variable which is within your GoKart Class).

I hope this helps.

Thanks Isaiah, greatly appreciate it.
