Along with the math calculations that computers know how to perform, they also typically know how to deliver a random number. A random
number is a number that is "unpredictable," meaning it is difficult for anyone to say for sure what number will be produced. This allows for one
to add an element of "unpredictability" in their programs.
This lesson will introduce you to random numbers, and how they might be used in a computer program.
