    Default Help with Variables and making them work :/

    <div id="ads">
    <script type="text/javascript">
    var rNumber = randInt(5); // generate a random interger from 1 to 5
    var rAd = adDescription(rNumber); //description of the random ad
    var rlink = adLink(rNumber); //URL of the random ad
    document.write("<a href="rLink">");
    document.write("<img scr="ad + rNumber + .jpg" alt="rAd"/>");
    document.write("<a/>");

    </script>
    </div>

    I am doing my homework for my class and i followed the instruction to the letter.

    The script is supposed to randomly generate 1 out of 5 different images and post them to the web page. Honestly im very stumped as nothing is happening at all.

    Any suggestions? or obvious mistakes in the code?

    Be more precise and get precise answer. Your code has no meaning to us. We don't read minds though. Also, Java!=Javascript. Plus may be some more information about your code could let us help you solving problem.

    Please take head of what has been said above.

    Also look at the double quotes in this string and tell me when you are inside a string and when you are not.

    document.write("<img scr="ad + rNumber + .jpg" alt="rAd"/>");
