Why donot you try these codes in your machine?It will help you to get used to these things.
Try this...

And also this...

And explain any errors you get, if any!
Answer the following:

  1. When does Integer.parseInt(String) throw an Exception?
  2. What Exception does it throw?

  3. Hope this helps,

The method parseInt(Strings s) of the Integer class takes a String argument and adding " " with int(c) makes it a String that can be accepted as String and it throws NumberFormatException - if the string does not contain a parsable integer.
