Ceiling ( Random * 6 )   (Excercise in FM Training Series)

Hello,

 

in FileMaker 12 Training Series they ask for the result of the following function:

Ceiling ( Random * 6 )

 

The solution according to the Training Series is:

A random integer from 1 to 6

 

That seems to me not correct. The Random function is explained as

Returns a random decimal number between 0 and 1 (including 0, but not including 1).

 

So, if Random returns 0.0, then 0.0*6 is also 0, and Ceiling(0) is 0.

So, I'd say the correct answer is: A random integer from 0 to 6

 

Who is right, FileMaker or me? ;-)

 

Thanks,

Michael
