2 Exercise: Dominoes • The game of dominoes is played with small black tiles, each having 2 numbers of dots from 0-6. Players line up tiles to match dots. • Given a class Domino with the following methods: public int first() // first dots value public int second() // second dots value public String toString() // e.g. "(3|5)" • Write a method hasChain that takes a List of dominoes and a starting/ending dot value, and returns whether the dominoes can be made into a chain that starts/ends with those values. – If the chain's start/end are the same, the answer is always true .
