                }
     
                // accessors for x & y

                }
     
                // move the x & y position
                void moveTo(int newx, int newy) {

                void rMoveTo(int deltax, int deltay) {
                    moveTo(getX() + deltax, getY() + deltay);
                }
     
                // virtual draw method
                abstract void draw();
     
            }
     
            class Square extends DrawableShape {
       private int width;
       private int height;
     
       // constructor
       Square(int newx, int newy, int newwidth, int newheight) {
          super(newx, newy);
          setWidth(newwidth);
          setHeight(newheight);
       }
     
       // accessors for the width & height
       int getWidth() { return width; }
       int getHeight() { return height; }
       void setWidth(int newwidth) { width = newwidth; }
       void setHeight(int newheight) { height = newheight; }
     
       // draw the square
       void draw() {
          System.out.println("Drawing a Rectangle at:(" + getX() + ", " + getY() +

    Please copy the full text of the compiler's error messages and post them here.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
