can someone help me finish the third line please?

Create a String variable named intAsString. Convert the randomNumber integer to a String value and store it in the intAsString variable. Hint: Add them together like in the video!

RandomTest.java
Random randomGenerator = new Random();
int randomNumber = randomGenerator.nextInt(10);
String intAsString

Either rewatch the video or read very carefully :)

It is actually pretty simple / silly if you get it!

But do as it says, add a String to the int variable! Remember, even a "[blank]" is a String.

I think in the video it's done like this:

String intAsString = randomNumber + "";
