# How can we use the random triangular() method in Python

Onyejiaku Theophilus Chidalu

### Overview

The random.triangular() method in Python is used to return a random floating number, which is between two specified numbers or boundaries (both inclusive).

### Syntax

random.triangular(low,high,mode)


### Parameters

1. low: This is a required parameter. We can specify the lower boundary of the random floating number, using this parameter. The default value for this parameter is 0.
2. high: This is a required parameter. We can specify the upper boundary of the random floating number, using this parameter. The default value for this parameter is 1.
3. mode: This is an optional parameter. It represents the midpoint between the two boundary values, high and low.

### Example

Now, let us write a code to return a random floating number that is greater than or equal to 10, lesser than or equal to 30, but closer to a midpoint of 20.

### Code

import random

print(random.triangular(10,30,20))


### Explanation

• Line 1: We import the random module.
• Line 3: We print the random floating number that is between 10 and 30 (both inclusive), but closer to a midpoint of 20.
