Welcome to Treehouse!

The "Mooshing" that is referenced in Task 4 is combining an integer with a String. In Java, if you have an integer value and want to quickly convert it into a String, you can "add" an empty string to the integer and it will turn it into a String object. Something like:

int numberTen = 10;
String stringVersionOfTen = numberTen + "";

Hope that points you in the right direction, and post back if you are still stuck.

Happy coding,
