I am confused on how to interpret this. Does it mean that if a user were to type in 42, the output would b answertolife?
String answerToLife = "42"; int answer = Integer.parseInt(answerToLife);

// first we declare a variable 'answerToLife' of type String and initialize it to "42": String answerToLife = "42"; // then we declare a variable 'answer' of type int and initialize it to using a method provided by the // Integer-class. 'Integer' is an object wrapper class for the primitive variable type 'int', 'int' by itself doesn't // contain any methods, but the wrapper class have a method called parseInt, which looks inside a string variable // for numbers, and if there are numbers, then the method can convert the type from a String to an int. int answer = Integer.parseInt(answerToLife); // some examples: System.out.printf("%d", answer); // outputs --> 42 System.out.printf("%s", answerToLife); // outputs --> "42"
Hope this helped.
