Hi Akif,
This is exactly a copy paste from MATLAB's help, so for further info type
doc rand
Your solution
r = a + (b-a).*rand(100,1);
Be aware, rand is generates evenly distributed random randi is the same but integer, But randn generates normally distributed random (gaussian distribution)
Good Luck!

And there's also a randi() that generates integers, though they're actually of class double, not an integer class, though they are rounded (no fraction).
