## Random Points within a Circle (#234)

Greetings Rubyists,

Generating random numbers is a useful feature and Ruby provides us
with `Kernel.rand` to generate numbers uniformly distributed between
zero and one. 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!
