In this video, Kathyrn shows you how to use Python's random module to create random values and generate random choices.
- [Instructor] The random module allows you to create…random values and generate random choices.…And so, to start off, as we do all of these module videos,…we're going to go import random.…Then we're going to go ahead and access the random function…in the random module,…and so to do this, we'll go print, random.random,…and this is just going to give us a random number…between zero and one,…but sometimes this isn't really useful,…but there are other functions inside of the random module…that also have this random functionality.…
So, let's create a variable called decider,…and it's going to have the value of random.random…range, and the input is going to be two.…And so, decider is either going to have the value zero or one.…Which one it will be, that is completely random.…However, we do know the value will not be two,…because this function is exclusive,…and so the only two possible values…that are going to be returned, are zero and one.…If we had three here, then the possible values…would be zero, one, or two;…
