Hi Jonathan,

The issue is with your last line. You have converted randomNumber to a string by adding the "" empty string to it. So, you can just assign that into intAsString like:

String intAsString = randomNumber + ""; 

That passes the challenge. Note, that I declared the String data type prior to the variable name. To use the class method that you have tried to, you need to pass it an int. As above, you've converted your int to a String already. So, omit the + "" and just pass in the variable:

String intAsString = Integer.toString(randomNumber);

Again, the data type is required to define the variable correctly.

I hope that makes sense,
