## Random numbers

Using the *random* module, we can generate pseudo-random numbers. The function random() generates a random number between zero and one [0, 0.1 .. 1]. Numbers generated with this module are not truly random but they are enough random for most purposes.

We can generate a (pseudo) random floating point number with this small code:

from random import * |

**Generate a random number between 1 and 100**

To generate a whole number (integer) between one and one hundred use:

from random import * |

This will printa random integer. If you want to store it in a variable you can use:

from random import * |

**Random number between 1 and 10**

To generate a random* floating point number* between 1 and 10 you can use the uniform() function

from random import * |

Picking a random item from a list

**Fun with lists**

We can shuffle a list with this code:

from random import * |

To pick a random number from a list:

from random import * |

We can do the same thing with a list of strings:

from random import * |
