Although the method is setting variable mPezCount with a constant MAX_PEZ (which are integers), the method does not return a value. So in the method declaration you need to use void which indicates there will be no return value. Had you wanted to return mPezCount then you would have used int in the method declaration.

Joshua you should probably mark this as best answer as it would be nice :) i upvoted and this is true for other programming languages that are void of a return type
