**Tell us what’s happening:**

Just not understanding why this is converted to an integer with a value of 3. I understand that “11” has a radix of 2, because there are 2 digits in the string; but when converted, why does this turn to 3?

Any help is appreciated; thanks!

**Your code so far**

```
function convertToInteger(str) {
return parseInt(str, 2);
}
convertToInteger("10011");
```
