Can't generate numbers

Hi.

I can't generate any numbers. Here's my JavaScript:

function alertRandom {
  var randomNumber = Math.floor( Math.random() * 6 ) + 1;
  alert(randomNumber);
}
alertRandom();

I'd appreciate any help.

Sean

You forgot the "()" after your function "alertRandom "

function alertRandom (){

}

Hi Tony. I added the parentheses after the function like you said and it worked. I can't believe I made such a stupid mistake. You've earned the Best Answer.

Thanks

Sean :-)
