# Could someone explain what I am doing wrong with this 2d array game

I have spent 4 days with this one issue and have search countless of possible solutions and now I am pulling out my hair. I am trying to get a minesweeper 2d character array game to first count the mines surrounding(basically the 8 blocks surrounding the mine) a mine then convert the characters surrounding the mines to integers. I would greatly appreciate if anyone could help. This is homework that is due tomorrow. I feel like such a dummy, but I have literally spent sleepless nights working on this one issue. :'( Someone please help example m is mine here is part of a void method that is suppose to check the areas around a mine and convert them to numbers calling the adjacentMines method

```    for(this.rows = 0; rows < board.length; rows++) {
for(this.cols = 0; cols < board[rows].length; cols++) {

for(int i = -1; i <= 1; i++) {
for(int j = -1; j <= 1; j++) {
if(i == 0 && j == 0) {
continue;
}
else
if(inBounds(rows + i, cols + j))

}
}

}
}
}
```

When I want something like this I want it to look like this when I select a cordinate, where x is the selected coordinate and not a mine, so I want to the output like this. The array above is just the current state, I want numbers to replace the e in the output | 0 | 1 | 0 | | 0 | x | 1 | | 0 | 0 | 0 |

There's an empty statement:

```if(inBounds(row + i, col + j)&&mineBoard[row][col]==true);
```

Notice the semi-colon at the end.

Also, in the latter snippet of code, the loops for i and j are redundant. You should get rid of them, and you shouldn't be counting mines for occupied cells.
