Hi Lee,
A sample project is attached. I'll discuss the following expression:
30 * (1 + 2 * random 2)
"random 2" gives either of two values: 0 or 1
"2 * random 2" gives either of two values: 0 or 2
"1 + 2 * random 2" gives either of two values: 1 or 1
"30 * (1 + 2 * random 2)" gives either of two values: 30 or 30
