i need some clues about this one..its a challenge question and i cant do a screen shot.

if it displays the code i could us e some hints on what to do next..Im trying to create a method and im not sure how to do that within the class GoKart being already created.For instance do i need to seperate the class block with { to start a method?

class GoKart {
  public  final int MAX_BARS = 8;
  private String color;
  private int barCount;

  public static void (charge);

  public GoKart(String color) {
    this.color = color;

  public String getColor() {
    return color;

You can declare additional methods within the same class block. See the provided method "getColor" as an example.
