No Repeats

Top  Previous  Next

By default, when regenerating parameters, the parameter system will not allow repeats of the same value.




In this example, no repeats is turned on. When you regenerate these parameters, both $a and $b will be chosen from the set {2,3,5,7}. Without "no repeats" there is a one in four chance that $a and $b will return the same value. This is rarely what is intended when you are defining a question. With "no repeats" enabled, you are guaranteed to have different primes selected for $a and $b
