I don't understand why this code doesn't work: Random randomGenerator = new Random(); int randomNumber = randomGenerator.nextInt(10); String intAsString = randomNumber.toString();

Here is a hint: you need to call the toString method of the integer class and pass in randomNumber as an argument. below is an example of how to call the toString method of the Integer class:


where someInt is the integer you want to convert to a String. you can assign the return value of the method to a variable like so:

String someString = Integer.toString(someInt);

see if you can figure out how to do it now

Got it. Thanks!
