I still cant get this right. Even after few feedback....

string heightInput = "168"; int height = int.Parse(heightInput);

Console.WriteLine(height + 10);

string heightInput = "168";
int height = int.Parse(heightInput);

Console.WriteLine(height + 10);

Don't worry about writing anything to the console, as it's not asking for that at all. You can remove...

Console.WriteLine(height + 10);

... and it will pass the first part just fine.

You still need to update height.

Christopher's right that you don't need to output to the console, but you do need to update the value with an assignment statement:

height = height + 10;

Another, and more compact way to do this is with an addition assignment:

height += 10;

Either one will produce the same result and pass the challenge.
