# How to get int63 type random number in Go language?

Go language provides inbuilt support for generating random numbers of the specified type with the help of a math/rand package. This package implements pseudo-random number generators. These random numbers are generated by a source and this source produces a deterministic sequence of values every time when the program run. And if you want to random numbers for security-sensitive work, then use the crypto/rand package.

You are allowed to generate the non-negative pseudo-random number of 63-bit integer as an int64 type from the default source with the help of the Int63() function provided by the math/rand package. So, you need to add a math/rand package in your program with the help of the import keyword to access the Int63() function.

Syntax:

`func Int63() int64`

Let us discuss this concept with the help of the given examples:

Example 1:

 `// Golang program to illustrate ` `// how to get a random number ` `package main ` ` `  `import ( ` `    ``"fmt"` `    ``"math/rand"` `) ` ` `  `// Main function ` `func main() { ` ` `  `    ``// Finding random numbers of int63 type ` `    ``// Using Int63() function ` `    ``res_1 := ``rand``.Int63() ` `    ``res_2 := ``rand``.Int63() ` `    ``res_3 := ``rand``.Int63() ` ` `  `    ``// Displaying the result ` `    ``fmt.Println(``"Random Number 1: "``, res_1) ` `    ``fmt.Println(``"Random Number 2: "``, res_2) ` `    ``fmt.Println(``"Random Number 3: "``, res_3) ` `} `

Output:

```Random Number 1:  5577006791947779410
Random Number 2:  8674665223082153551
Random Number 3:  6129484611666145821
```

Example 2:

 `// Golang program to illustrate ` `// the use of the random numbers ` `package main ` ` `  `import ( ` `    ``"fmt"` `    ``"math/rand"` `) ` ` `  `// Function ` `func int63random(value_1, value_2 int64) int64 { ` `    ``return` `value_1 + value_2 + ``rand``.Int63() ` ` `  `} ` ` `  `// Main function ` `func main() { ` ` `  `    ``// Getting result from Int63random() function ` `    ``res1 := int63random(10, 3) ` `    ``res2 := int63random(430, 56) ` `    ``res3 := int63random(13, 500) ` ` `  `    ``// Displaying results ` `    ``fmt.Println(``"Result 1: "``, res1) ` `    ``fmt.Println(``"Result 2: "``, res2) ` `    ``fmt.Println(``"Result 3: "``, res3) ` `} `

Output:

```Result 1:  5577006791947779423
Result 2:  8674665223082154037
Result 3:  6129484611666146334
```
