Java Java Basics Perfecting the Prototype Parsing Integers

Always 13 and under.

No matter what it always says that I need to be 13 or older.

  String ageAsString = console.readLine("How old are you?  ");
  int age = Integer.parseInt(ageAsString);
  if (age < 13);  {
    //Insert Exit Code
    console.printf("Sorry you must be at least 13 to use this program.\n");

[All of them are on the same lines as they are in the video in case this message makes it look like they aren't.]

What is wrong with this that is making it always say that I'm always under 13 no matter what I type in?

I added a ; after the 13.

Hi Blaise Durbin,

It looks like you don't need the ;, because if statements don't need them.

Let me know if it helps, ISAIAH S
