generating random elements

Hello All,

Could anybody help me with this question please?

I have a matrix "M" with five elements. I want to generate 10 (for example) matrices such that each element is randomly within +/- %5 of the corresponding element of the matrix "M".

Thank you in advance

I'm too lazy to type out the range variable, though ...
