Random numbers

I know a computer can't roll a dice everytime it is asked to generate a random number, so how do they do that?

There exists algorithms to create a pseudorandom number. Real randomness is not possible but you can simulate it. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pseudorandom_number_generator
