Why does this not work(java)?

Can anyone tell me what's wrong in this and provide me the answer for "Create a new int variable that is named answer. Store the integer version of answerToLife in it."?

String answerToLife = "42";
int answer = Int.parseInt(answertoLife);

Use Integer.parseInt(). Also, the 't' in answerToLife should be capitalized.
