# Doubt in Discrete-Event System Simulation by Jerry Banks,4th Edition

I'm new to the Math forum here, so pardon my question if it seems juvenile to some. I've googled intensively,gone through wikipedia,wolfram and after hitting dead ends everywhere have resorted to this site.

My query is this-

In chapter#8, "Random-Variate Generation", the problems are required to use a sequence of random numbers obtained from a table A.1 .

But I find no correlation between the random numbers used and the numbers in the table. So how are the numbers generated exactly? Are they assumed??

Table A.1 is on page 501 in this link

And the random numbers used in my problem are :
R1=0.8353
R2=0.9952
R3=0.8004

How do you get these values of R1,R2,R3 from the table in the link???

If you cant view the table from the link up there, the table is as in the image shown below-

Can you reproduce the table here? I can't see the preview in the link you gave. – Chris Taylor May 26 '11 at 13:05
