Now set mFuelLevel to the value from the Intent. Check the Intent documentation if you need help finding the correct met

Now set mFuelLevel to the value from the Intent. Check the Intent documentation if you need help finding the correct method to use. Use "FUEL_LEVEL" as the 'name' and -1 as the 'defaultValue'.

I don't seem to get it. Can you guys give me a hand?

FlightActivity.java
import android.os.Bundle;

public class FlightActivity extends Activity {

  public int mFuelLevel = 0;

  @Override
  protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
    setContentView(R.layout.activity_flight);

    // Add your code below!
    Intent intent = getIntent();
    Intent putExtra("FUEL_LEVEL", -1);
  }
}

Hi, You need to use the instance of intent object you just declared (intent not Intent) and to attach it the method getIntExtra(you want to get it not to put it) and it as to be equal to mFuelLevel: mFuelLevel = nameOfVariable.NameOfMethod(Parameters). Hope That'll help.
