# Compute Randomly Drawn Cauchy Density in R Programming – rcauchy() Function

`rcauchy()` function in R Language is used to compute random cauchy density among a range of inputs.

Syntax: rcauchy(N, scale)

Parameters:
N: Sample Size
scale: Scale to plot graph

Example 1:

 `# R program to generate ``# random cauchy density points`` ` `# Setting seed for``# random number generation``set``.seed(``1000``)`` ` `# Set sample size``N <``-` `20`` ` `# Calling rcauchy() Function``y <``-` `rcauchy(N, scale ``=` `10``)``y `

Output:

``` [1]   16.654755   -9.459054    3.740548  -14.639724 -193.891140    2.160767
