How To: Generate random numbers (with decimals) in Excel

Generate random numbers (with decimals) in Excel

This video shows you how to generate random numbers with decimals in Microsoft Excel.When generating random numbers you must have a lower and upper limit, so that your number will be generated between the two limits. For a number without decimals, you only have to use the "=randbetween" function. If you want to use decimals, you will have to use a different but similar function. Start by typing "=rand()". Next, you multiply this by the difference between the limits and add the lower limit. For example, if you want to generate a random number between 100 and 110, you must type "=rand()*10+100". 10 is the difference between 110 and 100 and 100 is the lower limit. You can generate new numbers by pressing the F9 button.
