Add

First time the Object is added, its no. of copies will be initialized to 1.

When an Object is added to the bag, it delegates the call to HashMap. The Object will be added as the Key, its hash code will be used to identify the array element.

If we add an existing Object, its no. of copies will be incremented by the no. of copies added. If we just call add(Object) , no. of copies will be incremented by one.
