Please help me. It keeps saying that it couldn't find my praseInt function when it is in my totalWidth variable!

app.js
var width = '190px';
var numOfDivs = 10;
var totalWidth = praseInt(width) * praseInt(numOfDivs)

Hi Ayub. 2 things i've noticed.

The first thing is that 'parseInt' is incorrectly spelt. You have written 'praseInt'.

The second things is 'numOfDivs' doesn't need the 'parseInt' function because 'numOfDivs' is already a number.

Try this

var width = '190px';
var numOfDivs = 10;
var totalWidth = parseInt(width) * numOfDivs;

Tom Thank you. Yes by mistake there. And I understand it now! Thanks for the explanation as well! -Ayub
