not importing 'random' library

Hello, so I get an error that from what I understand it does not import the library

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "random_number.py", line 1, in <module>
import random
File "/home/treehouse/workspace/random.py", line 3, in <module> secret_number = random.randint (1, 10)
AttributeError: module 'random' has no attribute 'randint'

My code:

import random

random_number = random.randint(1, 10)

while True:
    number_guess = int(input("Guess the number between 1 and 10"))
    if number_guess == number:
        print("You are correct! The number is {}".format(random_number))
        print("Try again...")

Huh, weird one, Try reloading the workspace? Your import and random.randint are fine.

Still does the same. Reloading and creating a new file does not help either.

Strange... I can create a new workspace, paste in your code and it works fine (name error on the if statement).

Try just opening a new python workspace and in the command line area at the bottom just type

import random

And see if it works? If not, there's something wrong with yourenvironment - contact support.
