# js math random

``````/*
The Math.random() function returns a floating-point, pseudo-random
number in the range 0 to less than 1 (inclusive of 0, but not 1)
with approximately uniform distribution over that range — which you
can then scale to your desired range. The implementation selects the
initial seed to the random number generation algorithm; it cannot
be chosen or reset by the user.

/*To generate a number that is a whole number rounded down between
1 and 10 */
Math.floor(Math.random() * 10) + 1 //the + 1 makes it so its not 0.Math.random()
// will return a number between 0 and 1, you can then time it up to get larger numbers.
//When using bigger numbers remember to use Math.floor if you want it to be a integer
Math.floor(Math.random() * 10) // Will return a integer between 0 and 9
Math.floor(Math.random() * 11) // Will return a integer between 0 and 10

// You can make functions aswell
