    Default Facing java error "cannot be applied to (java.lang.String)"

    hi again.
    first of all thanks to JavaPF..

    now here's my new problem
    i get this error:
    Outcome.java:11: setStudNum(int) in Student cannot be applied to (java.lang.String)
    b.setStudNum("\n0510180");
    ^


    here's my script
    Java Code
    public class Student
    {
    String Name,Course;
    int StudentNumber;
     
    	public void setNme(String inputName)
    	{
    	Name=inputName;
    	}
    	public String getNme()
    	{
    	return Name;
    	}
     
    	public void setStudNum(int inputStudentNumber)
    	{
    	StudentNumber=inputStudentNumber;
    	}
    	public int getStudNum()
    	{
    	return StudentNumber;
    	}
     
    	public void setCrs(String inputCourse)
    	{
    	Course=inputCourse;
    	}
    	public String getCrs()
    	{
    	return Course;
    	}
     
    }

    Java Code
    import java.util.*;
    public class Outcome
    {
    public static void main(String[]args)
    {
    Student a = new Student();
    a.setNme("\nCharles Jaime");
    System.out.print(a.getNme());
     
    Student b = new Student();
    b.setStudNum("\n0510180");
    System.out.print(b.getStudNum());
     
    Student c = new Student();
    c.setCrs("\nB.S. Computer Science");
    System.out.print(c.getCrs());
    }
    }
