HI I am stuck understanding this challenge because it is complicated a little bit when it comes to understanding this line
return Math.floor(Math.random() * (myMax - myMin + 1)) + myMin;
I need help to understand this line and how it works exactly

Hi Hamza-Noah,
Math.floor
rounds numbers down. For example Math.floor(2.5) = 2
Math.random
returns a â€śrandomâ€ť number between 0
and 1
. For example, it could return 0.1
.Letâ€™s use an example to understand the formula that you have here.
randomRange(3, 5) with Math.random() = 0.2
Math.floor(0.2 * (5 - 3 + 1)) + 3
Math.floor(0.2 * (3)) + 3
Math.floor(0.6) + 3
0 + 3
3
best,
Dennis
Hi @Hamza-Noah !
I edited your post to include the challenge link.
I also edited the title of your post to remove the link.
Please avoid placing links in the title since we cannot click on them.
I also found a helpful article on how Math.random works in the context of a game like the dice game.
I think when you see it working in the context of an actual project then it will start to make more sense.
