I have managed to get an array to generate random numbers between 0 and 99. However, I would also like the array to contain negative numbers as well but cannot work out how to do this?

Anyone able to offer advise on this please?

get the number and perform minus operation with 0 for example:

0-10 => -10

hope that is what you are looking.

Max Random = 200

your number = -100 + generatedRandomNumber
