```Hi everyone,
I have problem regarding to generate arrival of time based on uniform random number.
Let day0 = 0.383, lambda = 0.2612

1) Generate uniform random number (already settled) using the code below:
set.seed(1234)
rand.no <- function(n,itr){
matrix(runif(n*itr, 0, 1), nrow=n, ncol=itr)
}
x<-rand.no(10,1)
2) For day 1,
a) if 1st rand.no < day0, then its not rain,  else its rain (i want the rseult in next colum, let say rain)
3) For day 2 and so on ( it depend from next rain when it happened)
4) Next rain,
to know the next rain i need i need to calculate using the exponential

a) 1st rain = - ln (1st rand.no) / lambda
b) 2nd nextRain = 1st rain - ln (2nd rand.no) / lambda
c) 3rd nextRain = 2nd next rain - ln (3rd rand.no)/lambda,  and so on
eg: if nextRain = 2.435, then 2nd day will rain

Hope anyone can help me solve this problems. Thanks so much.
