random int

Return a pseudo-random value within a range of numbers.

randint(0, 10)

Returns a pseudo-random number in the range [min, max]; that is, from min (inclusive) up to and including max (inclusive).

What is pseudo-random?

Random numbers generated on a computer are often called pseudo-random. This because the method to create the number is based on some starting value obtained from the computer itself. The formula for the random number could use some amount of mathematical operations on a value derived from a timer or some other input. The resulting “random” number isn’t considered entirely random because it started with some initial value and a repeatable set of operations on it. Therefore, it’s called a pseudo-random number.


  • min: the smallest possible pseudo-random number to return.
  • max: the largest possible pseudo-random number to return.


  • a pseudo-random number between min (inclusive) and max (inclusive).


Generate a random number between 0 and 100.

let centoRandom = randint(0, 100);
