C# C# Objects Inheritance Catching Exceptions

Totally lost on how to put the logic inside a try/catch. I do understand an "if" statement which is straightforward...

I don't "get" the "logic" aspect being put inside the try/catch... I understand the "if" and throw, but this all seems very weird right now... and it is very frustrating to not have a good resource available immediately.

Program.cs
int value = int.Parse(Console.ReadLine());
try
{
if (value < 0 || value > 20)
{
    throw new System.Exception();
}

Console.WriteLine(string.Format("You entered {0}",value));

You're part-way there. But you still need to complete your "try" block (with a brace "}") and then add the "catch" block that prints out the error message.
