Almost there!

Random randomGenerator = new Random(); int randomNumber = randomGenerator.nextInt(10); String intAsString = randomNumber + "";

Hi Zarah - You have a typo in the String varable name. Also, since randomNumber is an integer you need to convert it to a String by adding and empty String to it:

String intAsString = randomNumber + "";
