Converting strings to integers
convert the string in heightInput to an integer using int.Parse.Store the result in a variable named height.
String heghtInput = "168"; int height = int.Parse(heightInput); height =+168;
You don't have to add 168 to your variable. "int.Parse()" detects any numbers in a string and turns them into integers. So when you parse your string and assign the result to your variable, you already have the number 168 stored.
