Hi Joe,

You need to assign a new Random() into the randomGenerator that's provided. At the moment, the code has a Random-sized hole in memory allocated into the variable named randomGenerator; you need to create the new Random and assign it into the variable using an equal sign.

Random randomGenerator = new Random (); just add = new Random (); that is all
