Quality of Random Number Generators
In this demonstration, you see just how random a random number generator is. Each time you click on 'Generate Numbers', a random number generator will generate a set of 100 random numbers between 1 and 100.
The number line below will indicate how many of the numbers that were generated were less than or equal to 50 in comparison to how many of the numbers were above 50 at that click; negative numbers indicate that numbers less than or equal to 50 were generated more often than numbers greater than 50. The histogram will keep track of how many times each number was generated throughout all of the clicks.
To see how certain random number generators compare to one another, you can switch between two different generators using the drop-down list below.
