Python Program to Generate a Random Number

In this example, you will learn to generate a random number in Python.

To understand this example, you should have the knowledge of following Python programming topics:

To generate random number in Python, randint() function is used. This function is defined in random module.


Source Code

# Program to generate a random number between 0 and 9

# import the random module
import random

print(random.randint(0,9))

Output

5

Note that, we may get different output because this program generates random number in range 0 and 9. The syntax of this function is:

random.randint(a,b)

This returns a number N in the inclusive range [a,b], meaning a <= N <= b, where the endpoints are included in the range.
