    Not quite. You don't want to pass a String literal into the method, but rather the String variable that holds the number String. The String held by the variable should have no spaces, no letters, no punctuation, nothing but a number, and you should place the result of this method call into an int variable. Why not give it another try and see what happens?

    As an aside, last I looked, your printf method call looked a bit off too.

    You can't use "armor" in a method as a substitute for the variable above.

    Re choice of 27, what example did you see it used in?

    Oh, I see. Yeah the Integer API does have an example of a 27 radix. This is very esoteric stuff, and something you'll likely never use. I suggestion that you don't use this example, but instead I'd use the Integer.parseInt method that takes a single String as a parameter, the one that uses the default base-10 radix.
    Okay, now i am bit confused. So I may just go the longer route and just individually label the parts I need for my algorithm to work (armor,combat level,etc). Thanks for trying though.
