result_type a() const;

// C++ code to demonstrate
// the working of a() function
  
#include <iostream>
  
// for uniform_int_distribution function
#include <random>
  
using namespace std;
  
int main()
{
    int a = 10, b = 100;
  
    // Initializing of uniform_int_distribution class
    uniform_int_distribution<int> distribution(a, b);
  
    // Using a()
    cout << "Lower Bound: "
         << distribution.a() << endl;
  
    return 0;
}
