trouble with task 4

I am new to coding and I don't know exactly how to go about finding the answer the fourth task. The question is

Declare a String variable named intAsString. Convert the randomNumber integer to a String value and store it in the intAsString variable. Hint: Use the toString() method of the Integer class.

Here is what I have so far:

randomGenerator = new Random(); int randomNumber = randomGenerator.nextInt(10);

to create a typical string:

String someString = "this is a string";

to create a string using the toString method of the integer class

String someString = Integer.toString(someInt);

the toString() method of the Integer class takes an int as a argument. hint: you created an int earlier in the challenge using the random generator.

Oh I got ya. Thank You!
