Adding a bit of text to the random number changes output range.

I got the random number generator to work (shows numbers from 1 to 6), however, I'm trying to add a bit of text to the alert. I'm getting numbers up to 30 now with no other change in Math.random.

alert("Your random number is " + Math.floor(Math.random() * 6) +1);

Hi Mark,

You will need to add parentheses to the random calculation as per below, in order to isolate it:

alert("Your random number is " + (Math.floor(Math.random() * 6) +1))
