Solution without randomColor function using template literal, is this okay to do? (See my solution)

let html = '';

function getRandomByte() {
  return Math.floor(Math.random() * 256 );
}

for ( let i = 0; i <= 10; i += 1 ) {
  html += `<div style="background-color:rgb(${getRandomByte()},${getRandomByte()},${getRandomByte()})"></div>`;
}

document.write(html);

There's rarely only one way to reach a solution, and this will certainly do the same job. :+1:

Another approach (that might be easier to read) would be to keep the randomColor function, but incorporate a template literal in it also.

keep the random Color text, butintroduce a template literal in it.

Why is keeping the randomColor function necessary when you can shorten the code without it?
