# Picking between two quesiton

Hi Gang,

I’m trying to see if there is a way to do something in CL where I can enter in two or more questions which get picked randomly for the students

example: -5^2 and -4^2

Also then how would the CL look for the picking the correct answer of -25 or -16 based on the question that the student gets. How would this look is I used math input or from time to time If I use tables.

Since i’m not that good with the random generating numbers/equations and such yet I figure this would be a good start for me, if it is possible.

If this is possible can anyone create/share an example for it that I can use.

Any and all help is super appreciated in advance!

I recently saw an example of your idea, but with equations. I would suggest building one with set examples in order to get the flow working correctly. Once that is working, then add in the random numbers. I’ve posted a few basic activities on here that use random number generators as well. If a search doesn’t work, I’ll see if I can find them.

Thanks @cwinske that was helpful. I think I was able get a work in progress going. For now this approach is ideal for me until eventually I can raise my noob level

I have another question about randomly picture between two images. Im having a hard time replicating that using the same CL code on slide 3. I would really appreciate if you could help me with that one.

Here is the work in progress desmos

You’ll want to only generate one random number. You can put the CL in any of the components, but I would personally put it in the note. Move the code that you have in the media components for generating the random number to the note, then you can put this code in the first media component:

``````hidden: note.script.d3=2
``````

And this in the second media component:

``````hidden: note.script.d3=1
``````

Make sure to name your note component to match the code.

Thanks for coming through again! I’m able to get the two pictures generated

Even though its working, CL is showing there is an error. I can’t seem to figure out how to fix that.

You can delete that line of code – it’s not needed.

Thank you so much for all your help. Much appreciated in the continuing journey of learning CL
