B More than two treatments

With more than two treatments, the method is simply adapted. Select an equal number of digits from 0 to 9 to represent each treatment. In situations where 10 is not equally divisible by the number of treatments, the remaining numbers can simply be ignored, without introducing any bias, as in the example below

1-3 ^ allocate treatment 1

4-6 ^ allocate treatment 2

7-9 ^ allocate treatment 3

0 ^ ignore, take next number
