I am writing a program that is supposed to generate
10 random numbers all of them with in the range of [-0.5, 0.5] (the data type that is supposed to be produced by the program are 10 random floating point numbers with in the interval [-0.5, 0.5]). But the problem is that I cannot do this correctly. Whenever I run it I keep getting values that are out of range.

Here is what I have:


Output from my program

0) 0.162537
1) -0.0823975 <--Value out of range of [0.5, -0.5]
2) 0.0454712 <--Value out of range of [0.5, -0.5]
3) 0.226471
4) 0.258606
5) 0.129608
6) 0.035675 <--Value out of range of [0.5, -0.5]
7) -0.00393677 <--Value out of range of [0.5, -0.5]
8) -0.128296
9) 0.0968628
10) -0.00238037

Code the first one is the header file(Market.h), The second one is (Market.cpp), The last is the test file this one runs the program.

//(Market.h)
class Market
{
public:
	Market(); 
	static void   SetRandom();
	
	static void   PrintPrices();


};

//(Market.cpp)
#include <iostream>
#include <cstdlib>
#include <ctime>
#include <string>
#include <iomanip>
using namespace std;
#include<cmath>

#include "Market.h"

string input;
const int MAXT = 11; //array size 
float r[MAXT]; //array to store the random numbers

void Market : : SetRandom()
{
	//this generates my random #'s
	srand((unsigned)time(0)); 
	float lowest=-0.5, highest=0.5; 
    float range=(highest-lowest); 

    for(int i=0; i<MAXT; i++)
	{
	r[i] = lowest+float(range*rand()/(RAND_MAX + 1.0)); 
	}   
}

void Market : : PrintPrices()
{
	
 for ( int j = 0; j < 11; j++ )                            
     cout << j <<")"<< setw( 13 ) << r[ j ] << endl;

	
	cout<<"\nPress enter to continue ...";
	getline( cin, input);
	
}

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

//(Test.cpp)
#include "Market.h" 

void main()
{
	Market : : SetRandom(); 
	Market : : PrintPrices();
}

Output from my program

0) 0.162537
1) -0.0823975 <--Value out of range of [0.5, -0.5]
2) 0.0454712 <--Value out of range of [0.5, -0.5]

10) -0.00238037

Those all look between -0.5 and 0.5 to me.
