    create a loop that would: Step1) Generate a random number from, say 0 to 1, call this number ANS Step2) Generate a random number from 0 to ANS, call this number ANS Step 3) Repeat Step 2 indefinitely

    On the TI-83 you can use randInt(0,10) unfortunately it only works for integers. For the TI-89, I would guess that it also has randInt...
