Hi,
One approach could be a while loop as follows. Note that your circle
should have radius 0.5 if I understood the problem correctly.
N <- 5
npoints <- 0
ntests <- 0
points.in.circle <- matrix(NA, ncol=2, nrow=N)
while (npoints < N) {
test.point <- runif(2, -0.5, 0.5) # generate new point in 2D
if ( sqrt(test.point %*% test.point) <= 0.5){ # test its distance to
the origin
npoints <- npoints + 1
points.in.circle[npoints, ] <- test.point
}
ntests <- ntests + 1
}
print(paste(npoints, "out of", ntests, 'where in the circle') )
HTH,
baptiste
