this will help I would like to control the number of black patches that are generated(for example generate 10 black patches in random positions). Right now I am generating a random amount in random locations. I am using netlogo. , Use nof: code :
ask patches [set pcolor gray]
ask nof 10 patches [set pcolor black]

How to generate a random number with fixed length only with 0's and 1's and a fixed amount of 1's?

it fixes the issue This should work for you: No need for a loop. Just first fill an array with 1's $many times. Then array_merge() the array with the 0's which you fill up until $length elements. code :
<?php
$min = 0;
$max = 1;
$many = 3;
$length = 6;
$arr = array_fill(0, $many, $min);
$arr = array_merge($arr, array_fill($many, $length$many, $max));
shuffle($arr);
echo implode("", $arr);
?>

Generate a random number and add 0 before it to ensure fixed number of digits

wish of those help so I am trying to generate a random number. I am going to append the day and month as integers before the random number. This I am able to do by using the following code. , Two possible solutions. code :
Calendar calendar = GregorianCalendar.getInstance();
int num = 0;
num += (calendar.get(Calendar.MONTH) + 1) * 10_000_000;
num += calendar.get(Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH) * 100_000;
num += your_random_number_lower_100000
Calendar calendar = GregorianCalendar.getInstance();
String randomDigits = String.format("%d%02d%05d",
calendar.get(Calendar.MONTH) + 1,
calendar.get(Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH),
your_random_number_lower_100000
);

How to generate a random normal distribution of a fixed number of positive integers that sum up to a fixed value

This might help you One approach might be the following: Think of an array of (sum − 1) bits. Choose (n − 1) of them as 1, the rest 0. Now between the ones, as well as before the first one and after the last, you have runs of zero or more zeros. Take the length of each run, add 1 (to turn nonnegative into positive) and you have n positive integers that add up to sum. From an implementation point of view, you don't really need that array; all you need is the positions of the ones. Make sure they are distinct, and make sure they are in the range between 0 and sum − 1 exclusive. code :
def random_partition(n, sum):
indices = [1] + sorted(random.sample(range(sum  1), n  1)) + [sum  1]
return [indices[i + 1]  indices[i] for i in range(n)]
