## 1. Random Module

In python, the function **random()** can not be directly called. However, we need to import a random module and generate random numbers by calling the static method. By importing this random module, it implements pseudo-random number generators for various distributions.

## 2. Random Function Details

```
import random
#@author: www.jl-blog.com
#generate a random integer from 1 to 8
def random_func():
print('random intger from 1 to 8')
print(random.randint(1,8))
#generate a random float from 0 to 1
print('random float from 0 to 1')
print(random.random())
#generate a float in between 1.1 to 8.8
print('random float from 1.1 to 8.8')
print(random.uniform(1.1,8.8))
#generate a element from a sequence
print('generate a element from a sequence')
seq='JL-Blog'
print('Random elment from {seq}', random.choice('JLblog'))
#Generate a random integers in the interval of 8 from 1 to 88
print('Generate a random integers in the interval of 8 from 1 to 88')
print(random.randrange(1,88,8))
a=[1,3,5,6,7]
print('List a ->',a)
random.shuffle(a)
# reorder the element in list a
print('After shuffle ->',a)
def main():
random_func()
if __name__=="__main__":
main()
```

## 4. Ancient Dice Game Introduction

Game rule translation:

In ancient China, it was one of the most popular games in casinos. To start the game, there are three cups covering the dice on the table. The player can gamble for the sum of three rotating dice under the cup. Before the game starts, players guess the sum of the dice.

There are three kinds of results that could be generated:

- 「Small」The sum of three dices are from 4 to 10.
- 「Big」The sum of three dices are from 11 to 17.
- 「Full Circle」Three dices are the same.
