Dragon Slayer! - Declare your variable
I don't have an issue with the code, I have a question about the Hint explanation. If I am reading this correctly, Math.floor(Math.random() * 5 + 1); would take a random number between 0 and 1, multiply it by 5, and then add 1. Then the Math.floor would round down. The Hint and instructions indicate that this will provide a number between 1 and 5, but wouldn't the range be actually be 1 to 6? If we assume that the random number by Math.random is 1, 1 * 5 + 1 would be 6. 6 is an round number so there is nothing for Math.Floor to do. Am I missing something here.?
How does this code work? Math.floor(Math.random() * 5 + 1); First we use Math.random() to create a random number from 0 up to 1. For example, 0.5 Then we multiply by 5 to make the random number from 0 up to 5. For example, 0.5 * 5 = 2.5 Next we use Math.floor() to round down to a whole number. For example, Math.floor( 2.5 ) = 2 Finally we add 1 to change the range from between 0 and 4 to between 1 and 5 (up to and including 5)
