Indicate the type of numbers to draw:
- choice according to an interval: select numbers between $ a $ and $ b $
Example: Draw $ N $ digits between $ 1 $ and $ 100 $
- choice according to a size: select numbers with a certain number of digits
- choice according to a list: select numbers from a given list
Example: A phone number corresponds to N digits from 0 to 9
A draw without replacement specifies that a picked number can not be picked a second time.
Example: Draws of $ 3 $ numbers between $ 1 $ and $ 5 $ could be $ 4,2,3 $ or $ 1,5,2 $ but never $ 1,2,2 $ (the $ 2 $ having been picked a first time, it is not put back into play)
During a draw without remplacement, it is not possible to pick more than $ N $ numbers in a range of size $ N $
Example: A selection of $ 100 $ numbers between $ 1 $ and $ 20 $ is impossible without replacement
A draw with replacement specifies that a picked number may be picked one or more times.
Example: Draws of $ 3 $ numbers between $ 1 $ and $ 5 $ could be $ 4,2,3 $ or $ 1,5,2 $ but also $ 1,2,2 $ (the $ 2 $ having been picked a first time, it is put back into play and can stand out)
During a draw with replacement, it is possible to pick more than $ N $ numbers in a range of size $ N $
Example: A selection of $ 100 $ numbers between $ 1 $ and $ 20 $ is possible with replacement
