Not sure what i am doing wrong here, keep getting error.

i keep getting the same error every time and i cant figure out why.

Program.cs(55,27): error CS0246: The type or namespace name `FormatExecption' could not be found. Are you missing an assembly reference?

using System;

namespace Treehouse.FitnessFrog { class Program { static void Main() { int runningTotal = 0;

        bool keepGoing = true;
        while(keepGoing)
        {
            // Prompt user for minutes exercised 
            Console.Write("Enter how many minutes you exercised or type \"quit\" to exit: ");
            string entry = Console.ReadLine();        

            if(entry == "quit")
            {
                keepGoing = false;
            }
            else
            {


                try
                {
                    // Add minutes exercised to total 
                    int minutes = int.Parse(entry);

                    if(minutes <= 0)
                    {
                        Console.WriteLine(minutes + " is not an acceptable value.");
                        continue;
                    }
                    else if(minutes <= 10)
                    {
                        Console.WriteLine("Better than nothing, am I right?");
                    }
                    else if(minutes <= 30)
                    {
                        Console.WriteLine("Way to go hot stuff!");
                    }
                    else if(minutes <= 60)
                    {
                        Console.WriteLine("You must be a ninja warrior in training!");
                    }
                    else
                    {        
                        Console.WriteLine("Okay, now you're just showing off!");
                    }

                    runningTotal = runningTotal + minutes;
                }
                catch(FormatExecption)
                {
                    Console.WriteLine("That is not valid input.");
                    continue;  
                }



                // Display total minutes exercised to the screen 
                Console.WriteLine("You've entered " + runningTotal + " minutes.");
            }
            // Repeat until user quits
        }

        Console.WriteLine("Goodbye");
    }
}

One of the great things about error codes is that you can Google it to find out more information, you are getting error code CS0246, a quick search finds this documentation:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/csharp/language-reference/compiler-messages/cs0246

I hope this helps, cheers.

Well the link itself helped me know what the error meant. so i will be sure to google the error codes from now on. but i solved it while typing my response to you, turns out i spelled Exception as Execption.
