According to THE BOOK I schould get a random number for a normal
distribution with


x = Random[NormalDistribution[50,2.1] ]
But I got

Random::"randt": "Type specification NormalDistribution[50,2.1] in
Random[NormalDistribution[50, 2.1]] should be Real, Integer, or Complex.".
I get a similar message for other distributions. What is wrong

all the best
