Make that work, then try the next step of analyzing the numbers. Post here (post the code) when you get stuck. Or if it's easier for you, write the code to do the analysis and hard code the 20 integers. Get that to work, then write the input part. Once both are done, combine them, substituting the input 20 integers for the hard coded 20 part. If you generate your random numbers in Python, use the seed() function by passing in an integer value: random.seed(1) # pass in an integer value as the seed random.sample(range(0, 32), 5) # [8, 4, 16, 7, 31] The above code snippet will always generate the same list of random numbers. If you use NumPy, use the random.seed() function:.
