For some reason, the while-loop I sent did not work. It was running forever
although I don't know why. Anyway, using repeat works fast:

      if(sum(x)==100) break

Betreff: [R] Sum(Random Numbers)=100

Hi R,


I need to generate 50 random numbers (preferably poisson), such that their
sum is equal to 100. How do I do this?



Thank you,
