Randomize a Series

 

Menu location: Analysis_Randomization_Series X to Y

 

This function randomizes a series of integers for which you define the beginning and end points of the series.

 

For example, randomizing numbers from 6 to 10 is like shuffling 5 cards labelled 6 to 10. To randomize a series of 49 possible lottery numbers enter x as 1 and y as 49:
