Refer to this again:

You tell me what the return datatype is.  Since you understand void from last question, should be able to pick it out from above.

{not trying to be funny by the way, trying to ensure you learn the concept of where and what the return type is in a method signature so you will be able to recognize when someone changes method signature on you}
