Hi! I have a list of variables: vars = {a, b, c, d, e, f, g, h, i} and a list of numbers: numbers = Range[9] Now i'd like to choose randomly a variable and a number. and then i'd like to assign the number to the variable. I thought of somehting like that: vars[[Random[Integer, {1, Length[vars]}]]] = numbers[[Random[Integer, {1, Length[numbers]}]]] but it doesn't work. i hope you have an idea! thank you for answering! MFG Ben
