# parseInt

Sometimes you want to read a number from a string. In case of an integer (..., -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, ..) you can
use the

In all examples, the second parameter passed to

If

A detailed documentation of

`parseInt`

function. The following examples return `19`

or `-19`

:
```
var n1 = parseInt('19', 10);
var n2 = parseInt('+19', 10);
var n3 = parseInt('-19', 10);
var n4 = parseInt('19 Grad', 10);
var n5 = parseInt('19.1', 10);
var n6 = parseInt('019', 10);
var n7 = parseInt(' 19', 10);
```

Besides the direct reading of integers with or without sign (n1, n2, n3), `parseInt`

can also handle some
more complex cases. Non-numeric characters after (n4, n5) as well as zeros (n6) and spaces (n7) before the integer
will be ignored.In all examples, the second parameter passed to

`parseInt`

is `10`

.
This parameter specifies the radix (the base in mathematical numeral systems) on which the number is to be interpreted.
`10`

represents the usual decimal system. If you omit the second parameter, the decimal system is normally
used as default. Since there are exceptions to this rule, you should always specify the radix!If

`parseInt`

cannot read an integer, it returns `NaN`

(Not a Number).
```
var n1 = parseInt('text', 10);
var n2 = parseInt('No. 10', 10);
```

In the first case there is no number at all. In the second case, there are non-numeric characters before the number.
This is not allowed and results in `NaN`

.A detailed documentation of

`parseInt`

can be found at
Mozilla web docs.## Exercise

Write a function

`add`

that takes a string with a summation task and returns its result as a number.
Two natural numbers should be added. The summation task is a string of the form '102+17'.
`add('102+17')`

should return `119`

.
+ Hint

Determine the first summand with

`parseInt`

.
Use `indexOf`

to determine the position of the plus sign.
Determine with `substring`

the substring after the plus sign.
Use `parseInt`

to determine the second summand from this substring.
+ Solution

```
var add = function(s) {
var summand1 = parseInt(s, 10);
var positionPlus = s.indexOf('+');
var sAfterPlus = s.substring(positionPlus + 1);
var summand2 = parseInt(sAfterPlus, 10);
return summand1 + summand2;
};
```
