# Tried some stuff, require assistance

var ran1 = prompt("please type a number"); var ran2 = prompt("please type another"); if ( isNaN(ran1) || isNaN(ran2) ) { alert("please reload and type a number"); } else { function max(ran1, ran2) { if ( ran1 > ran2 ) { return ran1; } else { return ran2; } } function min(ran1, ran2) { if ( ran1 < ran2 ) { return ran1; } else { return ran2; } } } alert(Math.random( parseInt(max) - parseInt(min) + 1 ) + parseInt(min));

/* This function is technically correct, but is not doing what I want it to. I want to take in two numbers, sort through them and generate a random number between those two. */

I assume you mean to set upperLimit to result of function max(), and lowerLimit to result of funtion min(). (Basically the lower number that user entered as lower limit and higher number that user entered as upper limit) Here is the code implementing the idea I just said.

There were multiple errors in your code.

• Random number generator formula was implemented incorrectly, so here is the formula: var randomNumber = Math.floor(Math.random() * (upperLimit - lowerLimit + 1) + lowerLimit);
• Instead of upper limit I placed max(ran1, ran2); function so that program gets higher number from the 2 numbers that user entered. Similarly, instead of lowerLimit, I placed min(ran1, ran2);
• Bunch of curly braces were placed incorrectly. So keep that in mind.
• I added parseInt in the isNaN parameter. I changed isNan(ran1) to isNaN(parseInt(ran1)) and did that for ran2 as well.
```function max(ran1, ran2){
if (ran1 > ran2) {
return ran1;
} else {
return ran2;
}
}

function min(ran1, ran2) {
if (ran1 < ran2) {
return ran1;
} else {
return ran2;
}
}

var ran1 = prompt("please type a number");
var ran2 = prompt("please type another");
if (isNaN(parseInt(ran1)) || isNaN(parseInt(ran2))) {
