    Default How to generate multiple random numbers?

    Create a Randoms application that generates 16 random numbers between 1 and 100, inclusive and displays them in rows of 4.

    So here's what I have so far:

    import java.util.Random;

    class randoms {
    public static void main(String args[]){
    Random number = new Random();
    int num = 0;
    int total = 16;

    while(num < 11){
    num = 1+number.nextInt(100);
    System.out.println(num);



    }

    }
    }

    Except that this code can only generate one random number when you run it, how do you generate multiple random numbers?

    Use your brain. Think about exactly what you need to do. First thing is how would you generate 100 numbers?
