double rand = (double)rand() / (double)rand();
random numbers of type double are normally generated with std::uniform_real_distribution and similar functions:

You'd have to show your code to get help with your specific error.
static_cast<double>(non-double variable)

This will turn an int into a double.
thank you guys :)
