how to create an object using a class created in another file?

I'm stuck on a challenge that i don't understand to well. I just grasped the idea of creating a public and private class. Now that i've created it how do i use it the way i should in this code challenge? Can someone please explain the right way to Call a class in this challenge task?

Example.java
public class Example {

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

You're on the right track! Remember to give the variable a name! For example: goKart. So that's GoKart goKart (the datatype followed by the name). Next, you can't simply pass in the word color, because Java doesn't know what that is. You must pass in an actual colour! I'm not going to give you the straight answer, because I want you to go back and watch the last video again :) You'll learn much more that way :)
