uniform() is a method specified in random library in Python 2 and Python 3.
Nowdays, in general day-day tasks there’s always the need to generate random numbers in a range. Normal programming constructs require a method more than just one word to achieve this particular task. In python, there’s an inbuilt method, “uniform()” which performs this task with ease and using just the one word. This method is defined in “random” module
Syntax : uniform(int x, int y)
x Specifies the lower limit of the random number required to generate.
y Specifies the upper limit of the random number required to generate.
Returns : Returns the generated floating point random number between lower limit and upper limit
Code #1 : Code to generate float random number.
The random number generated between 4 and 9 is : 7.494931618830411
There are many possible applications that can be thought of this function, some of the notable being generating random numbers in casino games, for lottery or custom games.
