I am trying to write a very simple program that will generate a random number from 65 to 90(betwen 65 and 90) , I dont want to use the Random class or nextInt() method , i simply want to achieve this by using the Math.random() , can some one please help or give some suggestion.

random() returns a number between 0.0 and 1.0. You will need to scale this, and shift the result to an appropriate range. So the way to do this would be:
double scale = ???; double shift = ???;
double rand = Math.random() * scale + shift;
What would appropriate values for scale and shift be?
As an aside, using the Random class might be simpler, since it can return an integer, and has a method that takes care of the scaling built in. [ February 22, 2008: Message edited by: Ulf Dittmer ]
