Python random module contains function to generate random numbers. So first you need to import random module using the following line.

## import random

## random() Function

random() function returns random number r such that 0 <= r < 1.0

1 2 3 4 |
>>> import random >>> for i in range(0, 10): ... print(random.random()) ... |

**Expected Output:**

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 |
0.9240468209780505 0.14200320177446257 0.8647635207997064 0.23926674191769448 0.4436673317102027 0.09211695432442013 0.2512541244937194 0.7279402864974873 0.3864708801092763 0.08450122561765672 |

randint(a, b) generate random numbers between a and b (inclusively).

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 |
>>> import random >>> for i in range(0, 10): ... print(random.randint(1, 10)) ... 8 3 4 7 1 5 3 7 3 3 |
