Hi,

Using the following code, I am generating a subtraction problem.

I want the first number to be bigger than the first so it will not result to a negative.

This is what I have:

		Random r = new Random();
		int first = r.nextInt(9) + 1;
		int second = r.nextInt(9) + 1;
		
		while (second < first){
		second = r.nextInt(9);
		}

		//answer
				sum = first - second;
