Computers can generate truly random numbers by observing some outside data, like mouse movements or fan noise, which is not predictable, and creating data from it. This is known as entropy. Other times, they generate “pseudorandom” numbers by using an algorithm so the results appear random, even though they aren’t.How do you generate a random number?
Here are the steps to generate random numbers using RANDBETWEEN: Select the cell in which you want to get the random numbers. In the active cell, enter =RANDBETWEEN(1,100). Hold the Control key and Press Enter.What is a true random number generator?
A hardware (true) random number generator is a piece of electronics that plugs into a computer and produces genuine random numbers as opposed to the pseudo-random numbers that are produced by a computer program such as newran.
