Give me a ELI5 explanation of Generate Random Whole Numbers within a Range Lesson

So this lesson doesn’t actually tell you anything, it just expects you to infer from the formula they provide what is happening. There’s not explanation of why you have to add 1, then add myMin again. Give me the most broken down, treat-me-like-I’m-a-child explanation of each of these steps please.

There are a few really great explanations on the forum. If you haven’t found one in the search that works for you by the time I wrap up at the dentist, I can give it a go.

Thank you. I found one. I’m realizing that some of these lessons lean on the expectation that you’ll use the forum to elucidate certain solutions. I haven’t really been exploring here enough when I probably should be.
