How do i connect two random elements from two arrays and print them together?( Swift)

I'm working on my own little project and having trouble accessing a random element from one array within a struct and another random element from another and printing those two together.

Hi Sandro!

I will give you some pointers on how you could get this done!

  • First you will have to figure out how to create a random number which can only go so low or so high.
  • You will then have to use this random number as the index of the array.
  • Finally then you will have to concatenate these two values together.

Good luck!

Thanks for responding, But the first two pointers are not the problem , the problem is combining the two random values and printing them in one string.

Try using some code like the following.

variable_name = arrayName[randomNumber1] + arrayName[randomNumber2]

Make sure that you have created all of these variables or substitute in the names of the variables that you have created.

Thanks for the help!
