You can't assign a String (which is what answerToLife holds) directly to an int variable, you have to convert it to an int first. One way of doing that is to use the Integer.parseInt method that was demonstrated in the previous lecture.

That method takes a String as an argument (the value you put into the parenthesis) and returns an int version of the String.

Also the int variable you create has to be named answer, not age. The challenges are very strict about variable names having to match whatever the task specifies.

Like this:

String answerToLife = "42";
int answer = Integer.parseInt(answerToLife);
