You are very close!

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

    }

    public boolean hasTile(char tile) {
      boolean hasTile = mHand.indexOf(tile) != -1;
       return hasTile;  // Changed to return value instead of 'false'
    }
