    Default Producing random numbers

    does nums.nextInt(10); generate random numbers between 0 and 10?

    Write a small test program with that line of code inside a loop and have a println() statement print out the results.
    Look at what is printed.
    If you don't understand my response, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    Straight from the java docs:

    nextInt(int n)
    Returns a pseudorandom, uniformly distributed int value between 0 (inclusive) and the specified value (exclusive), drawn from this random number generator's sequence.
    You could've looked it up yourself ...

    kind regards,
