Hi Tsvetan

If i am correct in saying you are refering to an array named mFacts you should access the position of the array using square brackets not parenthesis.

Your code is pretty much spot on from what i can tell just change the brackets to the following:

fact = mFacts[randomNumber];

Hope this helps Daniel

It works, thanks!
