# Generate random number between 0 and 1 in Python

Generating Random numbers is easily achievable in Python, as Python provides the `Random` module that contains some functions that can be used to generate random numbers as per the programmer’s needs. A Random number does not generate a different number every time we run the code, but it generates a value that cannot be predicted.

This tutorial will demonstrate the different ways available to generate a Random number between 0 and 1 in Python.

## Using the `random.uniform()` function.

The `random.uniform()` function is perfectly suited to generate a random number between the numbers 0 and 1, as it is utilized to return a random floating-point number between two given numbers specified as the parameters for the function.

This function is contained within the `random` module of Python that needs to be imported to the Python code first.

The following code uses the `random.uniform()` function to generate a random floating-point number between 0 and 1 in Python.

The above code provides the following output:

0.7361686989141768

The above code generates a random number in Python using the `random.uniform()` function. We should also note that as this is a code to generate a random number, the output will vary and be randomized every time the programmer runs the code.

## Using the `random.random()` function

The `random.random()` function is a function that is specifically designed to return a random number between the numbers `0.0` and `1.0`. This function returns a random number in the floating-point data type format. To use this method, we need to first import the `random` module to the Python code.

The following code uses the `random.random()` function to generate a random floating-point number between 0 and 1 in Python.

The above code provides the following output:

0.586756366643944

The above code generates a random number in Python using the `random.random()` function.

## Using the `random.randint()` function

The `random.randint()` function can be utilized to return a random number within a range that can be specified by the user. This function generates a random number in the integer data type format. Just like the aforementioned functions, the `random.randint()` function is contained within the `random` module, which needs to be imported first in order to use this function.

The `random.randint()` function is said to be an alias for the `random.randrange()` function. The module contains two parameters, `start` and `stop`, which specify the range between which a random number needs to be generated.

The following code uses the `random.randint()` function to generate a random integer number between 0 and 1 in Python.

The above code provides the following output:

1

Since the `random.randint()` function returns an integer, the output when this method is used will be either 0 or 1.

## Using the `numpy.random.random()` function

`NumPy`, which is an abbreviation for Numerical Python, is a library that is mainly utilized to deal with matrices and arrays in Python. The `NumPy` module contains a `random` submodule within itself that can be used to create an array of random numbers, the dimensions of the array can be anything the programmer specifies.

When it comes to generating a substantially large amount of numbers, the `NumPy` module is a little faster than the regular `random` module.

To successfully implement this method, we will first need to import the `numpy` module to the Python code.

The following code uses the `numpy` module to generate a random floating-point number between 0 and 1 in Python.

The above code provides the following output:

0.7013074645350525

Note that the output values may change as it is a program to generate random numbers.

## Using the `numpy.random.uniform()` function

This function is similar to the `random.uniform()` function contained within the general `random` module, with the only difference being that the result is returned and stored in a `NumPy` array.

The following code uses the `numpy.random.uniform()` function to generate a random floating-point number between 0 and 1 in Python.

The above code provides the following output:

0.34877376373755165

We can also use more functions like `numpy.random.randint()` or `numpy.random.randrange()` to implement the process of generating a random number between 0 and 1 in Python. However, similar to the `random.randint()` function explained above, these two functions provide an integer value, i.e. 0 or 1, which is not exactly what is desired when finding random numbers between 0 and 1.

That’s all
