    Default Pl help with my class assingment

    I messed up with my class assignment. Pl help me i did some so far.
    File Ship
    // public class Ship
    	private String name;
    	private double speed;
     public Ship()
    	public String getName()
    		return name;
    	public double getSpeed()
    		return speed;
    	public void setName(String newName)
    		name = newName;
    	public void setSpeed(double s)
    		if (s >= 0)
    		speed = s;
    	public double timeToCrossEnglishChannel(double s)
    		return speed * 2;
    And file ShipTest
    //import java.util.Scanner;
    public class ShipTest
    	public static void main(String[] args)
    		Ship myShip = new Ship();
    		myShip.setName("Rob Roy");
    So in File ship how to: Declare a public method called timeToCrossEnglishChannel.
    It takes no parameter and returns the number of hours it takes to cross the channel. The return value is of type double.
    and in File Shiptest how to: Create an instance of type Ship. Call the variable of type Ship paddleStreamer.
    The name of the paddleStreamer is Rob Roy and the speed is 6 knots. Use this information to assign the fields.

    What's Wrong With My Code?
    You forgot to use code tags.
    The indentation is incorrect.
    You did not ask a question.

    Please edit your post and use code tags on the code, and fix the indentation so it is easy to read. There are instructions on how to do so in the forum rules.
