How do you "wrap the testing logic with a try/catch block"

help please

Program.cs
int value = int.Parse(Console.ReadLine(22));

try

{

   if (value < 0 || value > 20);
{
    throw new System.Exception();
}

}
catch(System.Exception)
{
    Console.WriteLine("Value is out of bounds!");
}



//Console.WriteLine(string.Format("You entered {0}",value));

You're close, but somehow a stray semicolon got added to the provided code between the "if" condition and the brace that begins its code block.

Also, you still need to issue the original message when the error doesn't happen.
