Python Number randrange() Method



The method randrange() returns a randomly selected element from range(start, stop, step).


Following is the syntax for randrange() method:

randrange ([start,] stop [,step])

Note: This function is not accessible directly, so we need to import random module and then we need to call this function using random static object.


  • start -- Start point of the range. This would be included in the range. .

  • stop -- Stop point of the range. This would be excluded from the range..

  • step -- Steps to be added in a number to decide a random number..

Return Value

This method returns a random item from the given range


The following example shows the usage of randrange() method.

import random

# Select an even number in 100 <= number < 1000
print "randrange(100, 1000, 2) : ", random.randrange(100, 1000, 2)

# Select another number in 100 <= number < 1000
print "randrange(100, 1000, 3) : ", random.randrange(100, 1000, 3)

Let us compile and run the above program, this will produce the following result:

randrange(100, 1000, 2) :  976
randrange(100, 1000, 3) :  520
