## How to Generate Random Numbers using the Tool?

Generate Random Numbers with Min and Max Range

- To generate within a given range, enter Min and Max number. For example, to generate between -10 and 100, Min will be -10 and Max will be 100
- To get a list of numbers, change the count in the field labelled as 'How Many'. The default is 1
- Click on 'Generate' button
- The tool will generate a list of integers as per the setting. It will generate non-duplicate numbers by default
- To get with duplicate numbers, you can enable the 'Allow Duplicates' option
- Click on 'Refresh' to get a fresh set of numbers
- To pick a number at random, set Count as '1' and enter min and max appropriately. For eg to pick a number between 1 and 3, enter min as 1, max as 3 and click Generate.

How to Generate for a Specific Number of Digits?

- To generate based on number of digits, you have to simply set the min and max appropriately
- For example, to generate 3 digit random numbers, set min as 100 and max as 999. Click on Generate

How to Generate Random Decimal Numbers?

- Click the option 'Include Decimals'.
- Enter the Number of Decimals needed. Default is 1
- Enter the Min and Max Range. Click on Generate

The table below captures a few scenarios with min and max configuration

Scenario | Min (inclusive) | Max (inclusive) | Example: Your Random Number is |
---|---|---|---|

Random Text Number with length 5 | 10000 | 99999 | 49868 |

Random Text Number with length 8 to 10 | 10000000 | 9999999999 | 9224388010 |

Pick a number between 1 and 2 | 1 | 2 | 1 |

Generate random number 1 to 25 | 1 | 25 | 10 |

Pick a number between 500 and 1000 | 500 | 1000 | 939 |

1 digit generator | 0 | 9 | 2 |

2 digit generator | 10 | 99 | 90 |

3 digit generator | 100 | 999 | 639 |

4 digit generator | 1000 | 9999 | 3954 |

5 digit generator | 10000 | 99999 | 58228 |

6 digit generator | 100000 | 999999 | 349008 |

## What Algorithm is used by Random Number Generator Tool?

- There are two main types of random number generators: pseudo-random number generators (PRNGs) and true random number generators (TRNGs).
- PRNGs use a program/algorithm to generate a sequence of numbers that are random.
- TRNGs are based on physical elements such as atmospheric noise or hum to generate random numbers.
- This tool generates Pseudo Random Numbers from Rand library.
- You can set Integer ranges from -2147483647 to 2147483647 in this tool

## Frequently Asked Questions on RNG Generator

RNG stands for Random Number Generator.

PRNG stands for Pseudo Random Number Generator

Pseudo random number generator.

True Random number generator.

True Random number - This is also called Non deterministic random number.

It is based on hardware and other combinations of noise.

Pseudo Random number - This is also called Deterministic random number.

This produces predictable output and more of software program based.

This tool can pick a number from a range.

Configure the min number and max number to the range with count as 1.

To pick a number between 1 and 5, configure min as 1 and max as 5 and click generate.

Mersenne Twister (MT), Linear congruential generators (LCG) , Multiplicative Congruential Method (Lehmer Method), Lagged Fibonacci to name a few of them.

It stands for Deterministic Random Bit Generator.

It is same as Pseudo random number generator.
