JavaScript JavaScript Foundations Numbers Parsing Numbers From Strings

This challenge is really annoying.

I have tried everything and still not allowing me to move on to the next level. 640 is displaying in the console.log. what am i doing wrong? The question is a variable named "boxWidth" already exists with a value of "640px" create a new variable name "numWidth" and use the "parseInt" method to extract the numeric value from the boxWidth's string value.

      var boxWidth = "640px";
      var boxHeight = "480px";
          var numWidth= parseInt("640px",10);

What you have works, but they want you to use the boxWidth variable as an argument in the parseInt function. Try this:

var numWidth =  parseInt(boxWidth, 10);

thanks for making it clearly to me.

Np :D
