`int `

**random**(int *min*, int *max*)

The function `random()`

returns a whole number between *min* and *max*. It is suitable for random draws with replacement. Examples of its use as part of a random draw can be found in the chapter Randomization.

*min*

The smallest number allowed*max*

The largest number allowed

**Note:** Although one could create an experimental randomization via `random()`

, we strongly recommend using a Random Generator. For more information about randomization an experimental groups see Randomization.
