invoking methods while inside methods

I'm practicing methods by re-writing programs from class, but putting every little step into a method. (Clearly not practical, just for the practice of using methods)

But when I try and invoke the Math.random() method while already inside a method, I get the error ".class expected," and I'm not sure why, because I'm still in the same Main class where the Main method is, so...

i know it's not what you are looking for:
- please always post the full error
- take care of identation
- always use curly braces (for/if/do-while/while/...) even if the block only contains one statements

perhaps if you post cleaned up code and the full error someone can help you.

- always use curly braces

This is particularly true here
