Python Number uniform() Method



The method uniform() returns a random float r, such that x is less than or equal to r and r is less than y.


Following is the syntax for uniform() method:

uniform(x, y)

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


  • x -- Sets the lower limit of the random float.

  • y -- Sets the upper limit of the random float.

Return Value

This method returns a floating point number.


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

import random

print "Random Float uniform(5, 10) : ",  random.uniform(5, 10)

print "Random Float uniform(7, 14) : ",  random.uniform(7, 14)

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

Random Float uniform(5, 10) :  5.52615217015
Random Float uniform(7, 14) :  12.5326369199
