NEED DESPERATE HELP

This error code keeps occurring, I think the code is right.

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

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

  public String getColor() {
    return color;
  }

  public void charge() {
    barCount = MAX_BARS;
  }
  public boolean isBatteryEmpty(){
    if (barCount == 0){
      return true;
    } 
    else{
    return false;
    }
}

Aboudi ABU SAMRA, If you're going to choose yourself as "best answer" you should at least provide an actual answer for the benefit of other readers. Explain exactly what needed to be changed in the above code to resolve the issue, particularly since it should be something else than the advice already offered by other students .

Aboudi ABU SAMRA still working on updating your answer?

I am most curious to see how your final solution differs from what was given in the other answers.

It looks like you're missing a close brace :point_right: } :point_left:.

You have closing braces for the if and the else, but not for the isBatteryEmpty method itself.

its just a } at the end of your classGokart. class GoKart { public static final int MAX_BARS = 8; private String color; private int barCount; } gotta close your classes dog
