what is wrong with the code
var width = '190px'; var numOfDivs = 10; parseInt(width); var totalWidth = width * numOfDivs;

You've got the right idea, but the "parseInt" function returns the numeric value but it doesn't change the argument. So you can either assign it to a variable or just use it directly in the expression:
var totalWidth = parseInt(width) * numOfDivs;
