Given lower and upper limits, generate a given count of random numbers within a given range, starting from ‘start’ to ‘end’ and store them in list.
Examples:

```Input : num = 10, start = 20, end = 40
Output : [23, 20, 30, 33, 30, 36, 37, 27, 28, 38]
The output contains 10 random numbers in
range [20, 40].

Input : num = 5, start = 10, end = 15
Output : [15, 11, 15, 12, 11]
The output contains 5 random numbers in
range [10, 15].```

Python provides a random module to generate random numbers. To generate random numbers we have used the random function along with the use of the randint function.
Syntax:

`randint(start, end)`

randint accepts two parameters: a starting point and an ending point. Both should be integers and the first value should always be less than the second.

## Python3

 `# Python code to generate` `# random numbers and` `# append them to a list` `import` `random`   `# Function to generate` `# and append them ` `# start = starting range,` `# end = ending range` `# num = number of ` `# elements needs to be appended` `def` `Rand(start, end, num):` `    ``res ``=` `[]`   `    ``for` `j ``in` `range``(num):` `        ``res.append(random.randint(start, end))`   `    ``return` `res`   `# Driver Code` `num ``=` `10` `start ``=` `20` `end ``=` `40` `print``(Rand(start, end, num))`

Output:

`[23, 20, 30, 33, 30, 36, 37, 27, 28, 38]`

Method 2:  Using numpy random.randint() method to generate random numbers.

## Python3

 `# Python code to generate` `# random numbers and` `# append them to a list` `import` `numpy as np` `def` `Rand(start, end, num):` `    ``res ``=` `[]`   `    ``for` `j ``in` `range``(num):` `        ``res.append(np.random.randint(start, end))`   `    ``return` `res`     `# Driver Code` `num ``=` `10` `start ``=` `20` `end ``=` `40` `print``(Rand(start, end, num))`

Output:

`[30, 30, 38, 39, 39, 37, 24, 25, 28, 32]`
