# How can I generate a random number in a certain range? Code Answer

Hello Developer, Hope you guys are doing great. Today at Tutorial Guruji Official website, we are sharing the answer of How can I generate a random number in a certain range? without wasting too much if your time.

The question is published on by Tutorial Guruji team.

How can I create an app that generates a random number in Android using Eclipse and then show the result in a `TextView` field? The random number has to be in a range selected by the user. So, the user will input the max and min of the range, and then I will output the answer.

To extend what Rahul Gupta said:

You can use Java function `int random = Random.nextInt(n)`.
This returns a random `int` in the range `[0, n-1]`.

I.e., to get the range `[20, 80]` use:

```final int random = new Random().nextInt(61) + 20; // [0, 60] + 20 => [20, 80]
```

To generalize more:

```final int min = 20;
final int max = 80;
final int random = new Random().nextInt((max - min) + 1) + min;
```
