 Author Comment/Response Forum Moderator email me 09/20/07 07:01am Each time you evaluate x and y, you get a new random value so the values used to check x^2 + y^2 < 1 are not the same as those in {x, y}. You could do something like this: t2 = ListPlot[ Table[(a = x; b = y; If[a^2 + b^2 < 1, {a, b}]), {2000}]]; to set the coordinates you are working with for a given point and "record" them if they pass the test.
