My solution to the two-prompt random number generator

This one was a bit trickier, but this code seems to do the trick! :)

// Collect input from a user & convert to a number
const lowNumber = +prompt("Gimme a low number");
const highNumber = +prompt("Gimme a high number");

// Check high number is higher than low number
if (highNumber <= lowNumber) {
  alert("that number is lower than the first one!");

// Use Math.random() and the user's number to generate a random number
const difference = highNumber - lowNumber;
const random = Math.floor(Math.random() * difference) + lowNumber;

// Create a message displaying the random number
console.log(`Your random number between ${lowNumber} & ${highNumber} is: ${random}`);
