# elixir random number

To generate a random number in Elixir, you can use the `:rand.uniform/1`

function. This function generates a random float between 0 and 1. If you want to generate a random integer within a specific range, you can multiply the result by the range and round it to the nearest integer.

Here's an example of generating a random number between 1 and 10:

```
random_number = :rand.uniform(10) + 1
```

In this example, `:rand.uniform(10)`

generates a random float between 0 and 10, and adding 1 ensures that the result is between 1 and 10.

Please note that the `:rand.uniform/1`

function uses a pseudo-random number generator, so the generated numbers are not truly random. If you need a more secure random number, you can use the `:crypto.strong_rand_bytes/1`

function.

I hope this helps!
