    Exclamation Help with creating classes and sub classes

    Hello I need help with a java problem,i cant seem to get it.The problem is as follows.
    Consider a class RatingScore its attributes are a
    attributes
    a description of what is being rated ,the max rating and the user rating.
    Methods
    get userrating, get max rating and a write a description based on the maxrating and userrating.
    THis is the first part of the problem then it goes on to say consider another class that will judge a project its attributes are
    attributes
    projectname,idofproject,nameofperson,thoughtscore
    methods
    return rating and maximum rating
    I know I have to use the class RatingScore with the project class but I do not know how
    here is my code so far
    This is for RatingScore

    public class RatingScore
    {
    private int UserRating;
    private int maxRating;
    private String description;

    public void setUserRating(int newUserRating)
    {
    UserRating = newUserRating;
    }
    public void setmaxRating(int newmaxRating)
    {
    maxRating = newmaxRating;
    }

    public int getUserRating()
    {
    return UserRating;
    }

    public int getmaxRating()
    {
    return maxRating;

    }
    public void description()
    {
    System.out.println("the max rating for this project was" + maxRating + "the score you got was" +UserRating);
    }



    }


    THen I need to work it into the other class and this is where I need help with connecting the ideas

    public class ScienceFairProject

    {

    RatingScore ScienceFairProject = new RatingScore();

    private RatingScore thought;



    public void setthought(RatingScore newthought)
    {
    thought=newthought;

    To avoid confusion you should avoid giving variables/methods/classes the same name.
    Why have you declared 2 RatingScore variables in the ScienceFairProject?
    To get better help you need to ask a specific question. "I don't know how" is not a question nor is it specific.

    Do you mean when I set
    RatingScore ScienceFairProject = new RatingScore();

    private RatingScore thought;
    I am supposed to take what they give me in the thought which is located in the ScienceFairProject class and somehow make it display description from the RatingScore class

    So you have to create ONE RatingScore object. I repeat my question why do you have TWO variables?

    What do you mean "post the code"? It's your code not mine.
