# How to Generate a Random Number between Two Numbers in JavaScript

Topic: JavaScript / jQuery

## Answer: Use the `Math.random()` Method

You can simply use the `Math.random()` method in combination with the `Math.floor()` method to generate a random number between two numbers in JavaScript.

The `Math.random()` method returns a floating-point, pseudo-random number in the range 0 to less than 1 (inclusive of 0, but not 1), whereas the `Math.floor()` method round the number down to the nearest integer. Let's take a look at the following example to see how it works:

#### Example

Try this code »
``````/* Defining a custom function which returns a random number
between min and max, including min and max */
function generateRandomNumber(min, max) {
return Math.floor(Math.random() * (max - min + 1) + min);
}

// Generate a random number between 1 and 10 (including 1 and 10)
var randomNum = generateRandomNumber(1, 10);
console.log(randomNum);``````
