# Generate Set of Random Integers from Interval in R (2 Examples)

In this article, I’ll demonstrate how to **sample random integers from an interval** in the R programming language.

The content of the page is structured as follows:

Let’s just jump right in:

## Example 1: Sample Random Integers from Range without Replacement

The following R programming syntax demonstrates how to generate a set of unique random integers (i.e. sampling without replacement).

As a first step, we should set a random seed for reproducibility:

set.seed(2893755) # Set random seed |

set.seed(2893755) # Set random seed

In the next step, we can apply the sample.int function to draw random integers in a certain range. Within the sample.int function, we are specifying a range between 1 and 10 (i.e. n = 10) and a sample size of 5 (i.e. size = 5):

my_int1 <- sample.int(n = 10, # Generate random integers size = 5) my_int1 # Print vector of random integers # [1] 9 5 3 7 8 |

my_int1 <- sample.int(n = 10, # Generate random integers size = 5) my_int1 # Print vector of random integers # [1] 9 5 3 7 8

The previous vector shows our result: We have created a vector with a length of 5 containing random integers.

## Example 2: Sample Random Integers from Range with Replacement

The following R code shows how to draw random integers with replacement.

For this, we have to specify replace = TRUE within the sample.int function:

my_int2 <- sample.int(n = 10, # Generate random integers size = 5, replace = TRUE) my_int2 # Print vector of random integers # [1] 9 9 3 1 4 |

my_int2 <- sample.int(n = 10, # Generate random integers size = 5, replace = TRUE) my_int2 # Print vector of random integers # [1] 9 9 3 1 4

As you can see based on the previous output, we have created another vector containing five random integers. The value 9 has been drawn twice.
