JavaScript Code:

//#Source https://bit.ly/2neWfJ2 
const random_Number_In_Range = (min, max) => Math.random() * (max - min) + min;
console.log(random_Number_In_Range(2, 10)); 
console.log(random_Number_In_Range(1, 5)); 
console.log(random_Number_In_Range(-5, -2)); 
console.log(random_Number_In_Range(0, 1));

JavaScript: Tips of the Day

Chunks an array into n smaller arrays

Example:

const tips_chunkIntoN = (arr, n) => {
  const size = Math.ceil(arr.length / n);
  return Array.from({ length: n }, (v, i) =>
    arr.slice(i * size, i * size + size)
  );
}
console.log(tips_chunkIntoN([1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7,8], 4)); 

Output:

[[1,2],[3,4],[5,6],[7,8]]
