random numbers?


hello group.

this is gonna sound silly.  

How do ppl make random number generators?   is a random number
generator like a routine that picks a given set of different number
then goes back to the beginning and starts over?

How does mathematica determine if a numbder is random?  or is that
even a right question to ask?

I just wanted to know what the random generator is. and how it's used
in Mathematica.

maybe i'm asking alot. 

thanks in advance
