You do understand the question correctly, but the problem is that your solution does not create a new int variable named answer. Your code creates a variable named "answ_a_r" and this does not pass the test for the question because it is looking for the literal name "answer" and not just an int with the correct value.

The problem might be that you have int answar instead of int answer.
