    Question Random variable order.

    I just cant figure out the logic here

    I need my array indexes to be printed in a random order.
    I think there must be a random generator limited by 3 (I have three indexes) wich would be written down into another array.
    But how do i get them in the order based on that? And it might generate the same numbers like : 3 3 1 or 2 3 2.

    Please help me with the logic.

    Which part of this are you having trouble with? Check out the Math.random() method and the Random class api. Create an SSCCE that demonstrates exactly what you've tried and where you're stuck, and we'll go from there.

    I am not asking for help with the programming. Just the logic. All I need is help with the random variable print order. I have the random method setup and the array also
