Hi Please help me with this problem

Write the definition of a class Play containing:
An instance variable counter of type int , initialized to 0.
A method called increment that adds one to the instance variable counter . It does not accept parameters or return a value.
A method called getValue that doesn't accept any parameters. It returns the value of the instance variable counter .

my code:
public class play
{
int counter =0;
public void increment()
public getValue(){       //something is wrong here 
return counter;}
}

Any advice would be appreciated

Ok, your method increment needs to increment that counter variable, which you aren't doing...

There actually isn't anything wrong with the method getValue.

Try to think about what should happen in the increment method and then post again what you have if it isn't working.

public void increment() {
   // something needs to happen here.
}

Ok, there is something wrong there, every method in Java needs to know what its return value is.
