Question about Casio CFX-9850G Plus Calculator
The random number generator function is called Ran# and can be accessed
in RUN mode by pressing:
[OPTN] [F6] [F3] (PROB) [F4] to access the (Ran#) function
In the paragraph above, the bold text in square brackets indicates key presses, while the text in parentheses represents the menus that appear at the bottom of the calculator screen. This also assumes there are no menus on the bottom of the screen when you begin. If PROB is already on the screen, then the [F6] key is not necessary, just press [F3] then [F4] at this point.
The Ran# function generates a random decimal number between 0 and 1. If you need to generate a number with a higher range, then there may be extra steps involved. For example, to choose a random number between 0 and 100, you would enter:
Ran#×100 or Ran#(100)
Let's say you want to simulate a dice roll, where you get an integer between 1 and 6. Your first step would be to do:
This will give you a random decimal number between 0 and 6. But we need an integer, not a decimal. To make it an integer, you would change this to:
Press [OPTN] [F6] [F4] (NUM) [F2] to access the (Int)
This now gives you an integer between 0 and 5. We just need to add 1 to the result.
The result should be an integer between 1 and 6.
