task 3

let's add a method named charge. It should be public and return nothing. When called it should set mBarsCount to the value of the constant you declared in Task 1.

public class GoKart {
  private String mColor;

  public static final int MAX_B = 8;

public void charge() {
   mBarsCount = BATTERY;
  private int mBarsCount = 0;

  public GoKart(String color) {
    mColor = color;
    mBarsCount = 0;

     public void charge()
                       mBarsCount = MAX_B; 
  public String getColor() {
    return mColor;

First problem is that in the first charge() method you have a keyword 'BATTERY'- you didn't assign any variable to this name (should probably be MAX_B). Secondly, you cannot have two methods with the exact same signatures; you probably either need to delete one of the charge() methods or give one of them a parameter.
