Hi Jackie, are you on this Code Challenge: https://teamtreehouse.com/library/java-basics/perfecting-the-prototype/parsing-integers-2 ?

If you can use "Get Help" button the challenge it helps give us a better context of the problem :) Also, if you post the code you've tried, it helps as well.

If this is the problem you are on, it should look something like this:

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

That is how I did it. Maybe I'm just missing something.
