and let's say i have a range from 2 to N, what should i do to get the output only from 2 to N and not 0 to N?because what's given in the previous thread is a function to choose from 0 to N.
thank you :D
Say you want a random number from 2 to n where n is 15, you would do the following:
int n = 15; int random_int; random_int = (rand()%n-2)+2;
lets look at the min/max scenarios.
Should be 2 (right?)
so you random 0. But you said +2 at the end. so you get 2. which is minimum.
should be 15. But max of (15-2) is 13. But you added 2. So its 15.
