Hi subhanil,

You don't have to create another variable to complete this task.

The hint that's mentioned for the video showed you that you can convert a number to a string by adding an empty string to it.

String intAsString = randomNumber + "";

So all you need to do is add an empty string to the random number and then store it in the intAsString variable.

Use the valueOf static method from the String class:

fact = String.valueOf(randomNumber);
