Create Random Integer PHP

I need to create a random integer between 1.00 and 99.99 in PHP.

I've seen how to create a random 2 digit or 4 digit etc..., but not sure how to do with the decimal place?

This doesn't seem to work:
echo rand(1.00, 99.99);

Open in new window

If you're looking to create a random number with up to two decimal places, try

echo rand(100,9999) / 100;

Open in new window


rand() produces integers (no decimal places) so you take the minimum and maximum numbers you want, multiply by 100, and then divide by 100 again.
