It wont accept the input? I have Random randomGenerator = new Random(); int randomNumber = randomGenerator.nextInt(30); String myString = Integer.toString(someInt);

Hello,

Instead of putting someInt in the brackets, put the integer you are trying to get. I think it would be randomNumber in this case, and you have to declare the variable name as intAsString. Try :

String intAsString = Integer.toString(randomNumber);

Hope this helps, Paul :)
