Is it really random?
The output of the GetRandomNumber() method isn’t really random because it’s produced by a known mathematical formula. The output seems to follow an unpredictable pattern, and so it appears to be random. That’s why we call these numbers pseudo-random, where the word pseudo means fake, or not real. Anyway, the produced numbers are good enough for most applications.
That's it! Short and sweet!
