# Re: [R] Simulation from discrete uniform

Hi:

Suppose X has a discrete uniform distribution on the sample space S = {0, 1, 2, ..., 9}. Then a random sample of size 100 from this distribution, for example, would be

dus <- sample(0:9, 100, replace = TRUE)
# Checks:
table(dus)
lattice::barchart( ~ table(dus), xlim = c(0, 20))

The sample space comprises the first argument of sample(), the sample size is the second argument, and the replace = TRUE argument allows an element of the sample space to be selected more than once.

HTH,
Dennis
