I'm very new to Python, but it seems like I just learned in a class for
a random number, you would need the :
import random

Hi, I'm trying to write a program that uses the range function to
produce and then print [1, 2, 3, 4]. then prompt the user for an integer
n and print the list [1, 2, 3, ... , n] - including n. Then use a simple
repeat loop to print five randomly chosen numbers from the range [1, 2,
3, ... , n]

This is what I have done so far
print [1,2,3,4]
nstring = raw_input("Enter any number: ")
n = int(nstring)
print range(1,n+1)
y = random.randrange(1,n)
print y

It all works up until I need to print five randomly chosen numbers from
the range [1,n]. It tells me that random is not defined.

Thank you for your time.
