This is my code to print LF= then insert the random number
Serial.print("LF=", randNumber1);
But I get this error Invalid conversion from 'const char*' to 'long int'
I could switch the variable to short or int but I don't think that is the problem.  Probably a very simple fix that I'm not seeing.

Thanks Steve

the fix is:
Serial.print("LF=");
Serial.print( randNumber1);

Thanks that was too simple.  I guess I was trying to reduce the program size.  

Thanks Steve

There are some C++ tricks you can use to print more then one value in a single line of source code, but that doesn't reduce the size of the runtime code and it can be confusing if you are not familiar with C++
