If we want to generate random numbers with other distributions, then we'll need to do a little work. The quiz this week is to generate random points uniformly distributed within a circle of a given radius and position. This quiz is relatively simple, great if you are new to Ruby or strapped for time. Remember, it is contributions from people like *you* that make Ruby Quiz succeed! Have fun! -- -Daniel http://rubyquiz.strd6.com  |  Pages: 1 Prev: General Ruby OOP questionNext: Module vs Binding Evaluation
