Continuous uniformly distributed random numbers means the set of random numbers where probability of any number in any integral within a certain range of values is proportional to the ratio of the interval size to the range. The generated random numbers require to be independent & uniform in distribution. There are many different methods to generate the random numbers.

They are:

- Random numbers from table.
- From hardwired device.
- Using pseudo Number generation.

In linear congruential method, we use one initial number (r

_{0 }called seed) and few constants. Using the seed and the formula,

**r**_{i+1}= (r_{i}×a + b) (modulo m)
