Need some random numbers in your program? This article will help you to know different techniques to generate a random number in python. While developing small, large or enterprise applications, It requires generating random numbers. Let’s deep dive to Generate Random number using Python.

Python provides a ” random ” library to generate a random number using built un methods. Just “import random” and start generating a number which will be random.

Here is the example to generate a random integer number.

## Generate Random number using Python

### Using randint(a,b)

 ``````1 2 3 4 `````` ``````# Program to print 5 random integer numbers between 1 to 10000 import random for x in range(5): print random.randint(1, 10000)``````

This program prints 5 random integer numbers between 1 to 10000. randint is an inbuilt function in python random library. It has two parameters.`randint(a,b)` It generates the random integer number N such that.`a <= N <= b`

### Using random()

 ``````1 2 3 `````` ``````# Program to print 5 random numbers between 0.0 to 1.0 for x in range(5): print random.random()``````

This random function returns the random floating-point number in the range (0.0, 1.0).
