I need to generate random numbers from 1 to 768 in increments of 32. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Steve

set number to floor(random(1,24))*32

that just leaves out 1, I guess..
I told my dentist I had trouble with my teeth and asked her to fix it without looking in my mouth..

Either extend the range by 1 to 769, then it's
floor(random(25)) * 32 + 1

Or reduce the range by 31 to 737, then it's
floor(random(24)) * 32 + 1

Or start at 0, then it's
floor(random(25)) * 32tulamide2013-10-07 00:18:17

@tulamide,

You're right, slight miscalculation there.
Was aiming for your last one.
Added the 1 because I thought the 0 was unwanted, your explanation is much clearer.
