What could possibly be wring with my code?

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

This code works if it's used in a browser, but for some reason the treehouse platform doesn't like the multiple declarations of width. If you remove the var keyword on the second line, it works.

var width = '190px';
width = parseInt(width);
