I can't get the right statement to put it in while ...

public class GoKart { public static final int MAX_ENERGY_BARS = 8; private String mColor; private int mBarsCount;

public GoKart(String color) { mColor = color; mBarsCount = 0; }

public String getColor() { return mColor; }

public void charge() { mBarsCount = MAX_ENERGY_BARS; }

public boolean isBatteryEmpty() { return mBarsCount == 0; }

public boolean isFullyCharged() {
return mBarsCount == MAX_ENERGY_BARS; }

while (!isFullyCharged()){ mBarsCount++; }

}

GoKart.java
public class GoKart {
  public static final int MAX_ENERGY_BARS = 8;
  private String mColor;
  private int mBarsCount;

  public GoKart(String color) {
    mColor = color;
    mBarsCount = 0;
  }

  public String getColor() {
    return mColor;
  }

  public void charge() {
    mBarsCount = MAX_ENERGY_BARS;
  }

  public boolean isBatteryEmpty() {
    return mBarsCount == 0;
  }

  public boolean isFullyCharged() {   
    return mBarsCount == MAX_ENERGY_BARS;
  }

   while (!isFullyCharged()){
    mBarsCount++;
  }



}

I got it , I only had to get it into the charge() method... Thank you anyway ! like this

public void charge() { while(!isFullyCharged()){ mBarsCount++; } }

You need to do you a while loop that runs will check to see if the battery is charged if not then increment the mBarsCount, like this:

public void charge() {

    while(!isFullyCharged())
      mBarsCount++;
  }
