    Default Using the Scanner class


    Just wondering could anyone help me as I am very new to Java coding.

    I need to use a Random Object to produce two positive integer values. I think I have this part pretty much just the next part I find difficult.

    I have to prompt the user with a question asking them to multiply said two values. The user then enters an answer through the keyboard. Here is where the scanner class comes into effect ?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    The Scanner is used to get input from the user via its methods, nextInt(), nextLine(), nextDouble(), etc.... Your best bet is to experiment as much as possible with this class to get a feel for it.
