ParseInt command not working

I am trying to multiply the two variables, but cannot get the command to work. It keeps saying the Width variable is not found.

Here's what I have done, var Width = '190px' var numOfDivs = 10; var totalWidth = parseInt(Width) * numOfDivs;

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

There is no Width variable in your code.Note that in variable Width!=width .Your statement should be :

parseInt(width) ;///replace Width with width
