Hope this method helps you.You can get random number in what ever the range u want using this method.

Random random = new Random();

//Method to generate a random number between -50 and 50
public static int randomInt(int min, int max){
//generate an Integer random number
int result = random.nextInt();
//Logic to get the randum number between min(-50) and max(50) values
if (result < 0)
result = -result;
result %= (max - min + 1);
return result + min;
