the key concept is that non-static methods and variables belong to instances of a class;
dough -
a. A soft, thick mixture of dry ingredients, such as flour or meal, and liquid, such as water.
b.A pasty mass similar to this mixture
dough´┐Żnut -
A small ring-shaped cake made of rich, light dough that is fried in deep fat.

let's make a doughnut!


doughnut1.makeDoughnut(); allows us to call the non-static method named makeDoughnut() becasue we have an instance variable doughnut1 to attach to.
Did this help?
