C# C# Basics (Retired) Perform Converting Strings to Integers

how do you use int.Parse?

I can't figure out how to use it and return the value into another variable.

string heightInput = "168";

It's used like any function that returns a value.

You just assign the whole thing to a variable just like your first line is assigning "168" to heightInput.

So you'd have: int MyVariable = int.Parse(SomeString);

But notice that on the bottom row of your code, besides still needing your variable and an equal sign, you have a little typo (you left off the "e" in "Parse).
