Story Lo­ca­tion on CTAN: /macros/la­tex/con­trib/rangen Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: The rangen pack­age is a pack­age that gen­er­ates ran­dom in­te­gers, ra­tio­nal num­bers, and dec­i­mal num­ber. Li­cense type: lppl An­nounce­ment text:
The rangen pack­age is a pack­age that gen­er­ates ran­dom in­te­gers, ra­tio­nal num­bers, and dec­i­mal num­ber. Ac­tu­ally, the pack­age uses the lcg pack­age (by Erich Janka) to gen­er­ate ran­dom in­te­gers, while rangen builds ra­tio­nal num­bers and dec­i­mal num­bers from the gen­er­ated in­te­gers. My pur­pose in writ­ing this pack­age was to be able to cre­ate ran­dom ques­tions for the quizzes of ex­erquiz (part of AeB). In­deed, that is what you can do with this pack­age: Write a quiz ques­tion based on a tem­plate (for ex­am­ple, dif­fer­en­ti­ate $\a x^{\n}$ , where \a and \n are RVs (ran­dom vari­ables) gen­er­ated with rangen), de­ter­mine if the user in­put is cor­rect, and dis­play the cor­rect an­swer to the ques­tion.
This pack­age is lo­cated at http://tug.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/la­tex/con­trib/rangen . More in­for­ma­tion is at http://tug.ctan.org/pkg/rangen (if the pack­age is new it may take a day for that in­for­ma­tion to ap­pear). We are sup­ported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org .

rangen – Gen­er­ate ran­dom in­te­gers, ra­tio­nal and dec­i­mal num­bers

The pack­age gen­er­ates ran­dom in­te­gers, ra­tio­nal num­bers, and dec­i­mal num­bers. The pack­age uses the lcg pack­age to gen­er­ate ran­dom in­te­gers, and then builds ra­tio­nal num­bers and dec­i­mal num­bers from the gen­er­ated in­te­gers.
