Random Number RangesHow do I get a random number somewhere between 5 and +5? Solution:
Random x only works for positive numbers and starts at 1. To get a negative number, or a range of numbers that goes below 0, you need to subtract from your positive random number. In order to start your range of random numbers at a positive number greater than 1, you'll need to add to your random number. Next we want to find a random number in that range and either lift or lower the range by our lowest number.
