How about this:

> runif(1,0,0.5)

> runif(1,0,0.7)
[1] 0.1789742

Subject: [R] Choosing a random number between x and y


Ive been trying to find a function that will allow me to pull out a
between a minimum and maximum threshold.

I want a random decimal number between, for example, 0 and 0.5 or 0 and
I've been searching everywhere for a function that will allow me to do
in R, but I have yet to be successful. Any help would be much

Thanks in advance
