    Ok, that looks about right.
    For testing to see what is in the array use the Arrays class's toString() method:
    System.out.println("an ID "+ java.util.Arrays.toString(theArrayNameHere));
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    System.out.println("\n Random: " + java.util.Arrays.toString(counts));
    and the result being
    1 8 7 7 3 1 5 4 8 3 8 2 9 6 5 4 0 3 7 1 
     Random: [1, 3, 1, 3, 2, 2, 1, 3, 3, 1]
    Is the print out the amount of each specific number? and if so, is there a way so I can specify which amount is for which number?

    specify which amount is for which number?
    Write a loop like you had before that prints the index value and the contents of the array at that index.

    Is the print out the amount of each specific number?
    That is easily verified by looking at the numbers that were printed on the line above the line showing the contents of the array.

    Hopefully arrays will be easier next time.
