I need help, The array in Class Loto generates 6 random numbers and print them out. the Class Lotto askes the user to input 6 numbers which are stored in an array. i need code to compare the two arrays and see if they equal each other, and if they do display how many i got right. PLEASE HELP

import java.util.ArrayList;
import java.util.Random;
import java.util.Scanner;
public class Loto {

 public static void main(String[] arg) 
 {
  ArrayList<Integer> al = new ArrayList<Integer>();
  for(int i = 1; i <= 49; i++)
   al.add(i);
  Random ran = new Random();
  
  for(int i = 0; i < 6; i++) 
  {
   int x = al.remove(ran.nextInt(al.size()));
   System.out.print(" " + x);
  }
  System.out.println();
 }
}
import java.util.*;
import java.util.Scanner;
class lotto{
  public static void main(String[]args){
    int f[] = new int[6];
   
    
    Scanner keyboard = new Scanner(System.in);
    
    for(int j=0; j<f.length; j++){
      System.out.print("Input your " + (f[0]+1) + "st lotto number: ");
      f[0] = keyboard.nextInt();
      
    }
    
  }
}

well first i'd suggest changing the users int[] to an arraylist of integers also. next sort each array list check here:http://www.javamex.com/tutorials/collections/sorting_simple_cases.shtml , after you have sorted them iterate through arrays comparing each value:http://www.coderanch.com/t/407003/java/java/Compare-two-ArrayList

when i changed the user int[] to array list, how do i change the f[0] = keyboard.nextint() to work with array list

maybe:

int n=keyboard.nextint();
arraylistname.add(n);

Alright i got it to compile but i can't get the arrays to compare, if you read the code I'm trying to compare the arrays with an if loop, inside of 2 for loops. if you could help that would be great

      for(int j=0; j<f.length; j++)

        f[j] = keyboard.nextInt();

print the value of r[j] in the loop and you'll see that all its element's value is 0
