The random number's nextInt method generates a number between 0 and up to (but not including) the number you specify. This means that if you specify 8 you are telling nextInt to generate a number between 0 and 7.

In order to generate a number between 0 and 9 you therefore need to pass in 10 as the argument.

thanks that helps
