    The random class will generate a random number between 0 and 1. If you want to change this to another range (say between A and B) you'll do the following
    Code:
    number = A + (B * random number)

    I'll give you a good hint.

    Random.nextInt(max) gives you a random integer between 0 and max - 1. (it won't actually return max, keep that in mind).

    How hard would it be to set this up to give you between 10 and 99?
