java.util.Random rand = new java.util.Random();
int i = rand.nextInt(11);

// the 11 means (10 + 1) beacuse the parameter 11 is exclusive.

No, that delivers 0 - 10, correct is:

    int i = rand.nextInt(10) + 1;

would this work?

int ballToGoal = (int) (Math.random () * 10) ;

>> int ballToGoal = (int) (Math.random () * 10) ;

int ballToGoal = ( int ) Math.round ( ( Math.random () * 10 ) ) ; could work. Or: int ballToGoal = ( int ) ( Math.random () * 11 ) ;

- because random () returns double values greater than or equal to 0.0 and lesser than 1.0. So when you take the ( int ) part of Math.random () * 10, it will always lesser than or equal to 9 (even 9.9 would be converted to 9, that way).

Almost, but it would produce 0 - 9. You need



int ballToGoal = 1 + (int) (Math.random () * 10) ;
