Your code should look like this:

Random randomGenerator = new Random();
int randomNumber = randomGenerator.nextInt(10);
String intAsString = randomNumber + "";

What's going on here is that the code need the random number to be stored as a string, not an int, for some reason unknown to us in the code you've shown. An easy way to do this is to take a int value and add a space to the end of it. This looks like:

8 + ""

This will make the integer value into a string, so you can use it with methods and classes that require strings. If this helps, please rate it and let me know! Happy Coding!


Or the conventional ways would be by using the Integer.toString(int i) or String.valueOf(int i). in this case: String intAsString = Integer.toString(randomNumber); or String intAsString = String.valueOf(randomNumber);
