Question about Texas Instruments TI-83 Plus Calculator
Posted on Dec 04, 2007
Random number generators on computers are not really random. They need to be "seeded". If you seed the random number generator with the same seed each time you will generate the same list of numbers. A common technique in computer programming is to seed the random number generator with a value like the number of seconds that has occurred since midnight. This gives you the illusion of real random numbers.
Look up the word "Seed" in your calculator documentation and it will most likely tell you how this is accomplished on the TI calculators.
