Hi Friends 👋,

Welcome to Infinitbility ❤️!

Today, we are going to learn How to get a random number in typescript?, here we will use Math.ceil(), Math.floor(), and Math.random() methods to generate random as per our requirement.

Before going to code, let first understand what is those methods.

  1. Math.ceil()

    The Math.ceil() function always rounds a number up to the next largest integer.

  2. Math.floor()

    The Math.floor() function returns the largest integer less than or equal to a given number.

  3. Math.random()

    The Math.round() function returns the value of a number rounded to the nearest integer.

Here, we will create a custom genrateRandomNumber() method to generate numbers and it will expect min and max from ourselves.

* Genrate random int
* @param min 
* @param max 
* @returns random int - min & max inclusive
const genrateRandomNumber = (min: number, max: number) => {
	min: number = Math.ceil(min);
	max: number = Math.floor(max);
	return Math.floor(Math.random() * (max - min + 1)) + min; 


genrateRandomNumber(1000, 9000)

When you run the above code,

In the first console, you will get NaN because it’s expected.

In the second console, you will get some 4-digit random numbers because I have mentioned 1000 to 9000 for generate number.

All the best 👍.
