# Thread: print random numbers without repetition

1. ## print random numbers without repetition

hii..i want to print 6 numbers randomly...the program for dat is below:

//to print 6 random numbers in the range 1 to 49

public class PrrintRandom
{
public static void main(String[] args)
{
int i;
for (i=0;i<=6;i++)
{ int n=(int)(Math.random()*49)+1;
System.out.println(n);
}
}
}

above code is running fine...but i m getting duplicate numbers
so the new code i wrote is not working ...pls help me whre i m going wrong:

//to print 6 random numbers without repetition

public class NewRandom
{
public static void main(String[] args)
{
int i,j,a[]={};
for (i=0;i<6;i++)
{ int n=(int)(Math.random()*49)+1;
a[i]=n; //error in ths line
System.out.println(n);
}
for (i=0;i<6;i++)
{
for (j=0;j<6;j++)
while(i!=j)
{ if (a[i]==a[j])
System.out.println((int)(Math.random()*49)+1);
}
}
}

hi
public class NewRandom
{
public static void main(String[] args)

for (i=0;i<6;i++)
{ int n=(int)(Math.random()*49)+1;
a[i]=n; //error in ths line
System.out.println(n);
}
/*for (i=0;i<6;i++)
{
for (j=0;j<6;j++)
while(i!=j)
{ if (a[i]==a[j])

## Have a List<Integer> prepopulated with the Integers 1-49...Math.random based on the length of the list, and do a remove at that index.
:)

This is not terribly scaleable it has to be said...:D  Reply With Quote

4. ## use set

hi
see the set The Set Interface (The Java Tutorials > Collections > Interfaces)
in that no duplicate will not allow feature has to add by logic  Reply With Quote
