# How do I make a random number in python?

On repl.it, import Math does not work, so I can not use math.random to make a random number. What do I do to generate a number?

randint isnt a thing on this site

how to generate random numbers

If you want just a random integer and not a floating point, here is the solution:

a=random.randint(1,100);

print(a);

here's some code for you to look at: https://repl.it/@UzayAnil/guesspy

in the code, look at lines 1-10.

Send me the link to your repl.

Try `import randint from random`

ThePuzzlerThree

@theangryepicbanana does not work due to incorrect syntax

jameshoward3

@ThePuzzlerThree its the wrong way around its needs to be

from random import randint

from random import randint

eco27

you should be able to import math

did you remember to install it as a package?

ThePuzzlerThree

@MrEconomical which one?:

eco27

@ThePuzzlerThree just look up "math" and it should be there

ThePuzzlerThree

@MrEconomical i looked up math these were my results

eco27

@ThePuzzlerThree try pycopy-math I guess

ThePuzzlerThree

@MrEconomical okay hold on

ThePuzzlerThree

@MrEconomical the top one?

eco27

@ThePuzzlerThree yes I think so

ThePuzzlerThree

@MrEconomical When i try to install pycopy-math, it gives me an error message that the package installation failed.

@ThePuzzlerThree

`math`

is part of the standard libaray, so all you have to do is:
`import math`

But for random integers, you can use:

`from random import randint num = randint(0, 100)`

@LeonDoesCode This worked! Thanks!

this:

import random

x = random.randrange(1,100)

First you import random. then use the function randrange to create the random number, with the first parameter being the lowest number it can generate, and the second being the highest.

Hope this helped you out!

apparently, your supposed to do:

@DarshanRajparaimport random

x = random.randint(1, 100)

print(x)

from random import randint

x = randint(1, 100)

print(x)

randint doesn't work.
