.uniform()

The .uniform() method takes two numbers as arguments and returns a pseudo-random floating-point number between them. The result is inclusive of the first value, and possibly inclusive of the second value, depending on rounding.

Syntax

random.uniform(value1, value2)

Where value1 and value2 are numbers bounding the choice of a random floating-point number.

Example

In the example below, .uniform() is used to return a random floating-point number between 10 and 20:

import random
print(random.uniform(10,20))

Example output:

13.188312896316244

Codebyte Example

The following example prints random floating-point numbers between 10 and 15, 100 and 150, -10 and 10, and 0.75 and 0.90.
