Marky Because an int to a char is considered a narrowing conversion you need to cast the int to a char. int i = 65; char itoc = (char)i; System.out.println(itoc); // prints A Going the other way is easier because you dont need to cast an a char to an int, as it is conseidered a widening conversion. char a = 'A'; int atoi = a; System.out.println(atoi); // prints 65 hope that helps
