Python: Generate a random float within a specific range

Python module: Exercise-7 with Solution

Write a Python program to generate a float between 0 and 1, inclusive and generate a random float within a specific range.

Use random.uniform

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

import random 
print("Generate a float between 0 and 1, inclusive:")
print(random.uniform(0, 1))
print("\nGenerate a random float within a range:")
random_float = random.uniform(1.0, 3.0)
print(random_float)

Sample Output:

Generate a float between 0 and 1, inclusive:
0.9332552133311842

Generate a random float within a range:
1.3166101982165992

Python: Tips of the Day

For-else construct useful when searched for something and find it:

# For example assume that I need to search through a list and process each item until a flag item is found and 
# then stop processing. If the flag item is missing then an exception needs to be raised.

for i in mylist:
    if i == theflag:
        break
    process(i)
else:
    raise ValueError("List argument missing terminal flag.")
