In computer science, random numbers are something that you are likely to use regularly. They are also used in areas such as cryptography, while pseudorandom numbers are used in video games, modelling, and simulations. In this lesson, you will be introduced to the concept of random numbers using Python documentation. You will determine what the random module is capable of, and how random numbers can be generated in Python.
