Generating random numbers in Python

Random numbers, inherently unpredictable, serve as foundational elements in various computational domains. In programming, they find utility in applications ranging from statistical simulations to cryptographic protocols and game development. This concise thread explores two functions of how you can generate random numbers in Python.

The random module:

The random module in Python can be used to produce random numbers. To do this, you will need to import the random module in your code.

The random module provides several functions for generating random numbers, including the random() function, which generates a random float value between 0 and 1. You can use this function to generate a random float value for various purposes in your code. You can also use the randrange() function that generates a random number within a given range.

Here is an example code that generates random numbers using random() and randrange() functions:

The syntax for the randrange() function is randrange(beginning, end, step).
