For some reason under the rollDie method of part A, randGen is always showing an error. I have imported both java.util.* and java.util.Random. Can someone help me if they ran into the same problem or know what might be wrong?

Do you think you can provide a code sample of the pertinent line that's giving an error? The error message itself would also be appreciated.

Pro tip: In Eclipse, if you hover the mouse over the code that’s got the red underline (or if you hover it over the red x on the left side), it will give you a tip as to why it isn’t working.

It’s hard to answer this without knowing what the error is or seeing the code, but have you actually created a Random object i.e. Random example = new Random(); ?
