Convert the string in heightInput to an integer using int.Parse. Store the result in a variable named height.
I can't figure out what I am doing wrong. Please help. Here is my code as of now
string heightInput = "168"; int height = int.Parse(“heightInput”); Height =+168;

Don't put quotes around variable names.
If you put quotes around something, you create a new string with the name of that thing as the contents, not what it represents.
Also, those are not "straight" quotes as used for programming. Those are word-processor style quotes.
And you won't need that line assigning Height (with capital "H") at all.
