Hi Lean Karlo Corpuz ,

You have to use the randomNumber as parameter for the toString() method of the Integer class.

So Challenge task 4 of 4 "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." should be:

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