E.13. Overloading Methods

Overloading a method means defining multiple methods in the same class, each with the same name, each of which accepts a different parameter list. In this example the Vehicle class extends the Car class. Let us assume that by default, the honk() method will make a honking sound one time.

class Car extends Vehicle {
    void honk() {
    // honk code goes here
    void honk(int numberOfHonks) {
    // honk int number of times
