Do you need random numbers for a raffle or another purpose? This generator can help as it allows you to choose as many numbers as you need between a range.

To use it, select how many numbers you want and the range from which they should be selected at random. Let's say you want 4 numbers between 1 and 100 - you could get 99, 56, 12, and 4. Then next time around the numbers will be different.

## Why Use a Random Number Generator?

The human mind is not unbiased, which makes it impossible for it to pick random numbers. For trivial matters this is OK but for things like picking winners, it is necessary to use a random generator like this one to keep things fair.

## Can I use Decimals in this Generator?

No, you can only get integers.

## How Does the Generator get Random Numbers?

It uses the Python randint function. At the core of this function is the Mersenne Twister algorithm developed in 1997 by Makoto Matsumoto to rectify flaws in previous pseudorandom number generators.
