LaunchActivity.java
import android.content.Intent;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.Button;

Hi Prosper moyo

Thanks for trying this challenge. You can use the method defined in the Intent class putExtra() to store data as a Key-Value pair . In this challenge, the key is provided as "FUEL_LEVEL" . You are storing int fuelLevel which is already availed as field variable. Please have a look at my code below:

 @Override
            public void onClick(View v) {
                // Add your code in here!
                //intent declared for you here
                Intent intent = new Intent(LaunchActivity.this, FlightActivity.class);

             //using intent call method putExtra() to store int fuelLevel as key-value pair
              intent.putExtra("FUEL_LEVEL", fuelLevel);
                startActivity(intent);
            }

Keep learning!!
