I have a question concerning the use of the
extension of the Random[] function as defined in
the Statistics`ContinuousDistributions`. With
this extension it is possible to pick a random
number according to a given distribution function.

My question is: how is it possible to pick a Real
number with n digits? With the default function
it is possible to do so by calling


but I have found no way to do this with the
extended function.
