Easy way of getting a random integer in a specific range in JavaScript?

I have two values, let’s say 2 and 9 and I’d like to get a random number between the two (including those two), is there an easy way to do this?

@fpendovskiAug 12.2022 — This is an example from MDN's documentation:

function getRandomIntInclusive(min, max) {
min = Math.ceil(min);
max = Math.floor(max);
return Math.floor(Math.random() * (max - min + 1) + min); //The maximum is inclusive and the minimum is inclusive
}
let randomNumber = getRandomIntInclusive(2, 9);

Success!
