    Default random number array

    I'm trying to write a method called randomInt that takes two integers,low and high, and that returns a random integer x so that low is less than or equal to x which is less than high.
    public static int randomInt (low, high) {
        int high=100;
        for (int low=0; low <= 100; low ++) {
            int i= random ();
            return i;
    I don't know how to make it random .

    how to make it random
    Are you required to write the code that generates the random number
    or can you call one of the methods in an existing java class?

    If the latter, see the API doc for the Random class and also the Math class has a method.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
