I'll wait till you upload the world, and then I'll see what I can do with it.

You don't have to use the random number function, since it's not necessary, but there is a way to do it with that.

You'll probably have to make a numeric variable, and assign each cone to a certain number of the variable.

It'll probably look something like this:

1. world.number set value to [random number min=1 max=4]

2. If world.number=1
world.skatetocone1

Else
If world.number=2
world.skatetocone2

Else
If world.number=3
world.skatetocone3

Else
If world.number=4
world.skatetocone4

Else
Do nothing


Basically, at the beginning it sets the number variable to a random number, and then the If/Else statements nested within each other check to see which skating method it should do (to which cone) based on the random number function.

You don't actually have to have a separate skate method for each cone (you can use a parameter and use a single, all-encompassing method), but I don't know how far you are in your class, so you can stick to 4 different methods for now.

If you want, I can make an example of the parameter.

EDIT: Wait a minute, I misread. Four skaters and four cones?
To clarify, do the skaters skate to a different cone at the same time, or do they do it in a certain order?
From what it sounds like, each of the skaters goes in order, and each one skates to each of the four cones, but in a random order.
Please tell me exactly what the prompt is.
