Hello

I am stuck on a problem from a book I have it asks me to generate random
numbers between 1 and 100 using the following
Math.round(Math.random()*100);
With a sential number to end the sequence

I have no idea how to go about this as the book does not cover it..Can anybody

Hello emtinc,
Why not try and change this line Math.round(Math.random()*100); to Math.round(Math.random()%101);.This
should give you random numbers between less than 101(100 inclusive).
Thanks,
Seun
