What is SAGE's equivalent of Mathematica's RandomReal[] function?

See if the [random_element]( command is what you want. For example RR.random_element(-10,10)

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

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


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