Hi I need to make a random generator (1-50) that stops when it hits 22. I need to find the max and min of the numbers displayed after it hits 22.

This is what I have so far


public static void main(String[] args) throws FileNotFoundException {
Random generator = new Random();
File infile = new File("myrandomnumbers.txt");
PrintWriter prw = new PrintWriter("myrandomnumbers.txt");
Scanner filescan = new Scanner(infile);
int random;
int max=0;
int min=0;
int avg=0;
int count=0;
int numb;

random = generator.nextInt(51);
max = random;
min = random;


while (count !=22)
{
numb=generator.nextInt(51);
System.out.println(numb);
prw.println(random);

if (random > max)
{
max = random;
}
if (random < min)
{
min = random;
}
}

System.out.println("The min is "+ min);
prw.println("The min is "+ min);
System.out.println("The max is "+ max);
prw.println("The max is "+ max);
//System.out.println("The average is "+ avg);
//prw.println("The average is "+ avg);
}

}

Please help! I'm so lost Sad

This forum is for helping you deal with issues involving downloading,
installing and using Eclipse. It's not to help you with your homework,
to answer general programming or even Java questions.

I would also suggest that you haven't thought very deeply about your
predicament. In the first place, you don't state in very clear terms
what your problem is nor what you think your code is doing that doesn't
conform to purpose given.

For the future, I would suggest that you peruse this link:

http://www.catb.org/esr/faqs/smart-questions.html#intro

Its mere suggestion to use a meaningful subject should, when compared to
the one under which you sent this question, provide you a source of
great enlightenment.

Best of luck.
