Well, without telling us WHY you want to do this
(yes, I know its homework) or what distribution
of numbers you need, how can we really help you?

A = randi(1) + 0.5;

A will always be non-integer. Clearly it satisfies your
requirements as stated, but I fear it does not do
what you need. But how do we know what you
really need?
