C# | Random.NextDouble() Method

The NextDouble() Method of System.Random class in C# is used to return a random floating-point number which is greater than or equal to 0.0, and less than 1.0.

Syntax:

public virtual double NextDouble();

Return Value: This method returns a double-precision floating point number which is greater than or equal to 0.0, and less than 1.0.

Below program illustrates the use of NextDouble() Method:
