Last Modified: 2016-02-11
is there a formula that will divide a number randomly between a given number.      
So lets say I have 10 clients and 35 widgets.      
I want to distribute the widgets across the 10 clients randomly.      
Client 1      gets 4
Client 2      gets 0
Client 3      gets 3
Client 4      gets 2
Client 5      gets 1
Client 6      gets 1
Client 7      gets 3
Client 8      gets 6
Client 9      gets 8
Client 10      gets 7

Thanks in advance
