# Generate a random number between two numbers in JavaScript If you need to generate a random number between two numbers in JavaScript, then you are in the right place! Here you will learn javascript random number generation.

We can easily do this by using a combination of built-in `Math` functions.

## Javascript Random Number from Math.random()

Let’s start by using `Math.random()` to generate a random number. Now we will take that and multiply it by `max - min + 1`.

Because of how the `Math.random()` function works, we will need to then add the minimum value to this.

Once we are done, we pass it through a `Math.floor()` to get an absolute integer value (not a float).

## Code example for Javascript Random Numbers

We can wrap this all into a function as follows:

```.wp-block-code {
border: 0;
}

.wp-block-code > div {
overflow: auto;
}

.shcb-language {
border: 0;
clip: rect(1px, 1px, 1px, 1px);
-webkit-clip-path: inset(50%);
clip-path: inset(50%);
height: 1px;
margin: -1px;
overflow: hidden;
position: absolute;
width: 1px;
word-wrap: normal;
word-break: normal;
}

.hljs {
box-sizing: border-box;
}

.hljs.shcb-code-table {
display: table;
width: 100%;
}

.hljs.shcb-code-table > .shcb-loc {
color: inherit;
display: table-row;
width: 100%;
}

.hljs.shcb-code-table .shcb-loc > span {
display: table-cell;
}

.wp-block-code code.hljs:not(.shcb-wrap-lines) {
white-space: pre;
}

.wp-block-code code.hljs.shcb-wrap-lines {
white-space: pre-wrap;
}

.hljs.shcb-line-numbers {
border-spacing: 0;
counter-reset: line;
}

.hljs.shcb-line-numbers > .shcb-loc {
counter-increment: line;
}

.hljs.shcb-line-numbers .shcb-loc > span {
}

.hljs.shcb-line-numbers .shcb-loc::before {
border-right: 1px solid #ddd;
content: counter(line);
display: table-cell;
text-align: right;
-webkit-user-select: none;
-moz-user-select: none;
-ms-user-select: none;
user-select: none;
white-space: nowrap;
width: 1%;
}
```var generateRandomNumberBetween = function(min, max) {
return Math.floor(Math.random() * (max - min + 1) + min);
};```Code language: JavaScript (javascript)```
