how to convert int to string

I don't know why it is giving me compile errors.

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

Use the class Integer.toString function. This will parse the integer and return a static string.

I think the problem you are having is the name of the String variable. I think the test is looking for the exact name and yours is inAsString instead of intAsString.


The problem you are having is that you named your String inAsString instead of intAsString, so the testing code that is hidden is complaining that there is no variable named intAsString. Make that one change and I believe you should be able to pass the challenge.
