Hi there! Something changed in your code between step 1 and step 2. Take a look at this hint from step 1:

Hint: Don't forget to use the new keyword.

Remember, just about everything in programming is case-sensitive. Did you use new or New?

In step 2 take a look at this part of the instructions:

Create a new int variable named randomNumber.

But you created a new int variable named randomGenerator which is overwriting the randomGenerator variable you declared in the line just before. It should be int randomNumber.

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
