    Default This will be an easy one.

    Greetings! My name is Pedro and I am very interested in the java language, I have prior experience with other things such as HTML CSS Ect. This is my first post of the forum and I'm veryexcited to actually make better posts in the nearby future. I apologize if I broke any forum protocol by coming here first.. I've been programming for about two weeks now and I really can't understand anything unless a more advanced person helps me and some concepts really confuse me! I am looking at this problem and I think I'm overthinking it sometimes that hinders my ability too.. Anyway: the problem reads; create an EvergladesFire class with two constructors and a default size of 1 acre. (this is killing me, I'm not very good at assigning them) create methods windyDay( acres ) to make the fire get larger and rainStorm( acres ) to make smaller. Create a method extinguishFire() that sets fire size to 0. I get the methods but I'm having problems with writing the constructors. Can I please get some help? I'll post what I have so far when I get home. I'm on an iPod

    You would need two overloaded constructors. The default constructor takes no parameters and you would set acres to 1 there.
    The other one accepts an acres value and sets the class member value accordingly. Something like:
    EvergladesFire() {acres_ = 1.}
    EvergladesFire(double acres) {acres_ = acres}

    So, did you create the classes and constructors?
    And what is the problem, you are facing now?
