Go random with JavaScript

One day, you must need code to get a random number, or values, in your program. Suppose you code for a game such as backgammon requires a roll of some dice on each move. Since there are 6 numbers on each die, you could calculate each roll by finding a random number from 1 to 6 for each die.
Today you will learn going random with JavaScript.

idea

In the dreamnight animation we needed random positions and random colors for bubbles.

Math.random()

The random() method returns a random number between 0 and 1.

Generating random number less than M

 var randomnumber Math.floor(Math.random()*(M + 1));

This will generate no between 0 and M

Generating random number between higher and lower

 parseInt(rand_no Math.floor((higher - (lower 1)) * Math.random()) + lower); 



Generating random colors

 'rgb('+Math.floor(Math.random()*255)+','+
        Math.floor(Math.random()*255)+','+ 
        Math.floor(Math.random()*255)+')'
 


OR if you need it in hex -

 Math.round(0xffffff Math.random()).toString(16



I hope now you are able to solve your problem you googled.
Enjoy!!
