modify the addTile method so that it appends the tile that was passed in. I don't understand at all. pls help!

I'm struggling as to what I need to do. I have been on this challenge for like and hour and 30 minutes and haven't even gotten passed task 1.

public class ScrabblePlayer {
  // A String representing all of the tiles that this player has
  private String tiles;
  private String addTiles;

  public ScrabblePlayer() {
    tiles = "";

  public String getTiles()  {
    return tiles;

  public void addTile(char tile) {
    // TODO: Add the tile to tiles
    player.getTile += 'tile';


  public boolean hasTile(char tile) {
    // TODO: Determine if user has the tile passed in
    return false;
