```Not sure why you have set the probability of a 1 to 0 but maybe something
like this might be what you want:

round( ifelse( rbinom(25, 1, 0.4), runif(25, 2, 10), runif(25, 11, 100) ) )
[1]  2  6 34 90 79 71 83  8 47 36 21 32 17 71  3 16  9 65 94  6 30  5  7
10 13

############
I would like to generate 25 numbers from 1 to 100 but I would like to have
some numbers that could  be more probable to come out. I was thinking of
the function runif:
runif(25, 1, 100) , but I don´t know how to give more weight to some numbers.

Example:
each number from 2 to 10 has the probability of 40% to come out but the
probability of each number from 11 to 100 to come out is 60%.
