I don't understand why this says this
We expected the "integer" variable to equal 123, but it was: nil
string = "123" # YOUR CODE HERE string = integer.to_i string = float.to_f

Take a look at the message. It states that the
integer variable is supposed to equal
123. But apparently it does not.
The two questions you could ask are:
- Has a variable named integer been declared?
- If yes, have I assigned a value of
string = integer.to_i
Here you are assigning the result of
integer.to_i to a variable named
string. But what I think you want to do is assign the result of
string.to_i to a variable named
string = "123" integer = string.to_i # "123" => 123
