Android Build an Interactive Story App (Retired) Intents and Multiple Activities Getting Data from an Intent

I couldn't understand this question!

We previously added a FUEL_LEVEL to our spacecraft. Now in FlightActivity, we want to get the value that we put in the Intent. Start by declaring an Intent variable and getting the Intent used to start this Activity.

import android.os.Bundle;

public class FlightActivity extends Activity {

  public int mFuelLevel = 0;

  protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

    // Add your code below!
    Intent intent = getStringExtra("FUEL_LEVEL");

You just have to start declaring the intent variable and getting de value.

Intent intet = getIntent();

I think you're getting it a little bit mixed up :) I'd recommend you to go back and watch the previous video to make sure that you understand what's going on. You must first get the intent, and then store the value in an appropriate variable type.
