# how to generate random numbers between closed interval [0,1]?

I need to get soma random values between closed interval [0,1] rather than opened interval. Is there any way this can be done?

Is this ok? On Best Solutions

You can use:

`random.uniform(0, 1)`

Note: When calling `N = random.uniform(a, b)`, the behaviour is always that `a <= N <= b` but the end-point value `b` may or may not be included in the range depending on floating-point rounding. On

First, try: `import random` `(random.randint(0,10**6)*1.0 /10**6)` This will give you full floating point precision. Otherwise, try:

import decimal

``````def randfloat():
decimal.getcontext().prec = 10  # 10 decimal points enough?!
return decimal.Decimal(0) + decimal.Decimal(random.uniform(0, 1))
# this should include both boundaries as float gets close enough to 1 to make decimal round

>>> decimal.Decimal(0) + decimal.Decimal(0.99999999999)
Decimal('1.000000000')
``````

while uniform() apparently guarantees the inclusion of the lower boundary
