please identify my mistake, I couldn't pass this problem !!!! please find where did I make a mistake,

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

public ScrabblePlayer() { tiles = ""; }

public String getTiles() { return tiles; }

public void addTile(char tile) { // TODO: Add the tile to tiles tiles += tile; }

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

if(tiles.indexOf(tile)>= 0){

  return true;
}
return false;

}

}

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

  public ScrabblePlayer() {
    tiles = "";
  }

  public String getTiles() {
    return tiles;
  }

  public void addTile(char tile) {
    // TODO: Add the tile to tiles
tiles += tile;
  }

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

    if(tiles.indexOf(tile)>= 0){

      return true;
    }
    return false;
  }

Hi,

I belive your code is right but the challenge wants the return in one line. I did like this.

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

    return tiles.indexOf(tile) >= 0 ? true : false ;
  }
