Need help with my script

function rand(min, max)
       return math.random()*max+1--this is needed because I need it to be min or bigger
end

while true do
       local a = rand(1, 3)
       print(a)
end

The problem is that it also prints number that is bigger than 3
I want it to print random number(don’t need to be integer) between 1 and 3

Not sure what you are trying to do but you can do this instead…

while true do
    local a = math.random(1, 3)
    print(a)
end

If you’re trying to make another math.random() system without the 2 arguments.

local function rand(min, max)
    return math.random() * (max - min) + min
end

while true do
    local a = rand(1, 3)
    print(a)
end

To get rid of the decimals you can use math.floor or math.ceil.

local function rand(min, max)
    return math.floor(math.random() * (max - min) + min)
end

while true do
    local a = rand(1, 3)
    print(a)
end
```
