The nextFloat() method of Random class returns the next pseudorandom, uniformly distributed float value between 0.0 and 1.0 from the random number generator’s sequence.

Syntax:

Return Value: This method returns the next pseudorandom float number between 0.0 and 1.0.

Program below demonstrates the above mentioned function:

Program 1:




// program to demonstrate the
// function java.util.Random.nextFloat()
  
import java.util.*;
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // create random object
        Random r = new Random();
  
        // check next float value and printing it
        System.out.println("Next float value is = "
                           + r.nextFloat());
    }
}

Output:

Next float value is = 0.25155503

Program 2:




// program to demonstrate the
// function java.util.Random.nextFloat()
  
import java.util.*;
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // create random object
        Random r = new Random();
  
        // check next float value and printing it
        System.out.println("Next float value is = "
                           + r.nextFloat());
    }
}

Output:

Next float value is = 0.7730949
