# random number rails

First, you need to include the `SecureRandom`

module in your Ruby file. This module provides a set of methods for generating random numbers and strings.

```
require 'securerandom'
```

Next, you can generate a random number within a specific range using the `rand`

method. The `rand`

method accepts an argument which represents the upper limit of the range (exclusive). For example, to generate a random number between 1 and 100, you can use:

```
random_number = rand(1..100)
```

If you want to generate a random number within a range where the start value is inclusive, you can use the `rand`

method with a range object. For example, to generate a random number between 1 and 100 (inclusive), you can use:

```
random_number = rand(1..101)
```

Alternatively, you can use the `SecureRandom`

module to generate a random number within a specific range. The `SecureRandom`

module provides the `rand`

method, which accepts two arguments representing the range. For example, to generate a random number between 1 and 100, you can use:

```
random_number = SecureRandom.random_number(1..100)
```

The `SecureRandom`

module uses a cryptographically secure random number generator, which is suitable for generating random numbers for security-sensitive applications.

In summary, to generate a random number in Ruby using the Rails framework, you need to include the `SecureRandom`

module and use either the `rand`

method or the `SecureRandom.random_number`

method, depending on your requirements for range inclusivity and security.
