Help with converting string into integers

I can't figure out how to solve this problem. Please provide me the answer and explanation of why. Thank you!

string heightInput = "168";

int height = int.Parse(heightInput);

heightInput = height + 10;

You are really close.

The instructions for task 2 say, "Add 10 to height and store result back into height."

You added 10 to height, but then you stored the result in heightInput. Just store your result in height instead and you should pass.
