JavaScript JavaScript Basics (Retired) Creating Reusable Code with Functions Random Number Challenge

It works but is this the right way of doing it?

It is within the range of arguments but am I cheating the system by omitting the formula?

function minMax(start, end){ var randomChose = Math.floor(Math.random() * end) + start; return randomChose; }

console.log(minMax(0, 4) );

You haven't omitted the formula, but you've created a different one. It may seem to perform similarly for some arguments, but the difference will become obvious with others.

For example, try using this function to generate a random number between 80 and 90.
