Hi,
I have this small doubt about generating random double values with in a range, for example between 0.6 to 1

I am new to java programming. Can any one help me on this.

Thanks in advance.

Math.random() returns a random double between 0 and 1. But you want a range of 0.4. Therefore, multiply Math.random() by .4. This gives you a random number between 0 and .4. Now add .6 to this number, pushing the range up to .6 to 1.

Dig?

Thank you Joe,

That was too silly a question to ask.
Thank you again for bearing this topic.
