| Greetings:
| I am a fairly new user and I have come across 
this problem twice. The last
| time I just worked my way around it, but this 
time I can't.
| When I exicute the line below, mathematica takes 
a new random number for
| each element in the list "k[dist]"
| l[dist_] := Map[# < Random[] &, k[dist]]
| I would like mathematica to take one random 
number and then use the same
| random number for evaluating every element in 
the list.  Also, I want the
| random number to be different each time I use 
the function.
| Any help would be most appreciated.
| Thank you.
| Kevin
