Here's a few hints:

  • don't change the class line itself
  • a constructor definition will be contained inside the class
  • a constructor has the same name as the class, and is just like a method but it has no return type
  • parameters must have an explicit type
  • parameter names cannot be (or start with) numbers
  • the instructions say this constructor should have only one parameter
  • for an example, review the Object Initialization video starting around 0:20

thank you very much!!! it didnt take much for me to solve this after your advice!
