Now that I know void doesn't return anything what about this code.

What's the return type in this code?
public boolean rentHouse(String address, double weeklyRent, House rentedHouse)

Refer to this again: http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/java/javaOO/methods.html

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}
