Let's dive into making random numbers with `JavaScript`

today; this comes in handy more often than you would think.

## Random number using Math.random

We can use the `Math.random()`

method to generate a random number; this is returned as a `float`

. Which means it's a number between zero and one.

```
const number = Math.random();
console.log(number);
```

This will return something like this `0.1433017075000662`

.

## Getting a Number bigger than zero

But what if we need a number bigger than zero? Well we can make our own function for that.

```
const randomFunction = function () {
return Math.random() * 100;
};
console.log(randomFunction());
```

You can adjust the 100 to increase the number.
The current setup will return something like `34.68974860200957`

.

Now you know how to leverage `Math.random()`

feel free to play with this Codepen.
