Java Java Objects (Retired) Harnessing the Power of Objects Handling Exceptions

Try/catch

Where do I put the try and catch blocks? After the kart.drive(4)? Before? Very confused here...

Main.java
public class Main {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        GoKart kart = new GoKart("yellow");
        if (kart.isBatteryEmpty()) {
          System.out.println("The battery is empty");
        }
        kart.drive(2);
    }
}

You want to put the try block where you think the exception might be thrown; in this case if the user tries to drive more laps than the battery will allow then an exception should be thrown. So you want to put your drive() method call inside your try block.
