**Block Category:** Random Generator

**Description:** The triangular block generates random
numbers for a triangular distribution. The triangular distribution is typically
used as a subjective description of a population for which there is only limited
sample data, and especially in cases where the relationship between variables is
known but data is scarce (possibly because of the high cost of collection). It
is based on a knowledge of the minimum and maximum and an inspired guess as to
the modal value. For more information, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triangular_distribution.
