Troubles with Parsing Numbers From Strings/ first task in quiz

Hi, guys. I´m taking the quiz for Parsing Numbers From Strings. At the first task I don´t know what I´m doing wrong. Hope you can help me.

A variable named "boxWidth" already exists with a value of "640px". Create a new variable named "numWidth" and use the "parseInt" method to extract the numeric value from boxWidth's string value.

I wrote:

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


it doesn´t work. and i don't know what wrong?

Use the variable boxWidth instead of the string literal of its value.

Thank you sooooo much James.
