I don't know much about Mathematica but from looking at the description here I think you want random_element(). Typing

```
RR.random_element(-10,10)
```

will produce a random real between -10 and 10. Change the upper and lower limits as you need.

See if the [random_element](http://www.sagemath.org/doc/reference/rings_numerical/sage/rings/real_mpfr.html) command is what you want. For example RR.random_element(-10,10)

Yes, thank you. That's what I was looking for.
