int main()
int i;
double total_time;
clock_t start, end;

start = clock();//time count starts

for (i = 0; i < 25000; i++)
printf("random_number[%d]= %dn", i + 1, rand());
end = clock();//time count stops
total_time = ((double) (end - start)) / CLK_TCK;//calulate total time
printf("nTime taken to print 25000 random number is: %f", total_time);
return 0;
