what am I missing

can't get this

Random  randomGenerator = new Random();
int randomNumber =  randomGenerator.nextInt(10); 
intAsString = intAsString  [randomNumber] ; // delete
intAsString = randomNumber + ""; // delete

I added comments in your code; then follow the post below. :smile: :+1:

Hi Tremayne,

You're just missing the last line.

Add an empty string to randomNumber and assign that (with an equals sign) into intAsString.

String intAsString = randomNumber + "";

This converts the int, called randomNumber into a string and stores it in intAsString.

Let me know how you get on.
