Top Forums Programming How to set constrain on random numbers in c Post 302157418 by Perderabo on Thursday 10th of January 2008 11:31:45 PM

If you had, say, 100, to distribute 5 into 5 variables: You pick a number from 1 to 100, let's say you get 20. The first variable gets the 20. Now 100 - 20 = 80 is left. So pick a number between 1 and 80. You stop when you get to only 1 variable and it gets the remainder. Or if the amount left reaches zero, you stop early and the rest of the variable must be zero.
