    mHand = "";

  public String getHand() {
   return mHand;

  public void addTile(char tile) {
    // Adds the tile to the hand of the player
    mHand += tile;

   public int getTileCount(char answer){
      int count=0;

     for(char letter :mHand.toCharArray()){
        count ++;
    return count;

  public boolean hasTile(char tile) {
   return mHand.indexOf(tile) > -1;

Instead of for(char letter :mHand.toCharArray()){ if(mHand.indexOf(answer)>=0){ count ++; }

Try for(char letter :mHand.toCharArray()){ if(mHand.indexOf(letter)>=0){ count ++; }
