Hi all, my Professor has asked us to solve this problem, which is a Midterm Practice problem for our up and coming Midterm exam, which is on Monday. I am wondering if I'm doing this the correct way or not.

**Here is this question the problem asks:**

Problem 19 Random Steps

Write a function named randomSteps() that simulates a person taking a specified number of steps of

varying length. The length of the steps varies at random within a specified range. (Use the function in

the random module random.randint(a, b), which returns a random integer N such that a <= N <= b.)

Input:

Parameter 1: minStep, an integer >= 0 that is the minimum length of a single step

Parameter 2: maxStep, an integer > 0 that is the maximum length of a single step

Parameter 3: steps, an integer > 0 that is the total number of steps to be taken

Return:

An integer that is the distance walked

Assume that the parameters are in the specified range. Because the steps are of random length,

successive calls to randomSteps() with the same parameters may produce different output. An example

of a call of randomSteps() and its output would be:

>>> print(randomSteps(2, 5, 100))

>>> 355

**Following the instructions, I've come up with this for my code:**

import random

def randomSteps(minStep, maxStep, distance):

length = 0

while length < distance:

length = random.randint(minStep, maxStep)

length += minStep

distance -= length

return length

print(randomSteps(2, 5, 100))

I normally get an output (with these variables) of 5, 6, or sometimes 7. Can anyone tell me if this is correct, or what should I change to make it correct, or at least guide me :). Thanks so much!
