Code Challenge: learning the language. HELP!

So this is what I'm at.

"Declare a String variable named intAsString. Convert the randomNumber integer to a String value and store it in the intAsString variable. Hint: Use the toString() method of the Integer class."

This is what I have.

Random randomGenerator = new Random(); int randomNumber = randomGenerator.nextInt(10); answer = intAsString.toString(randomNumber);

1 Answer

Make sure you declare a String variable first:

String intAsString;

Then, to convert the random number to a String:

intAsString = Integer.toString(randomNumber);
