You still have a spelling error. You typed "parsenlnt" (with a lower-case "l") instead of "parseInt" (with a capital "I").

In case these don't look different on your screen, the first one is "l" as in "lady", and then "I" as in "Integer" (which is what it stands for).

You also do not need to perform this on "numOfDivs", since it already represents a number.

The function name is short for parse an Integer, so

parseInt

and not

parselnt
