Hi Aadaam Kelly,

For task 1 try this:

We are passing in a String "red".

 GoKart kart = new GoKart("red");

For task 2 it is asking us to use printf and the getColor method to print the color:

System.out.printf(kart.getColor());

Task1 and Task2 looks like:

public class Example {

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

         //task 1
         GoKart kart = new GoKart("red");

         //task 2
         System.out.printf(kart.getColor());
    }
}

Hope this helps! If you have any other questions feel free to ask!

Figured it out right after I posted. :/
