Create a new int variable named randomNumber. Use the randomGenerator variable and its nextInt() method to get a random number. Do not set a range.

Random randomGenerator = new Random();
int RandomNumber = RandomGenerator.nextInt()

Hi Aaslin. You are close. You have 2 typos that are causing syntax errors.

  1. You forgot the ; after your second statement 2 you created randomGenerator but then tried to use it as RandomGenerator. Those names are case sensitive and need to be exactly the same. Good luck and keep learning!
