Discrete random variables

* Intermediate Mathematics - Random variables

Random variables

A random variable [1] is a variable whose value is a numerical outcome of some random experiment. [ ] An experiment is random if the outcome is uncertain. !or example" an experiment could be the random selection of a male from a #roup of students $probabilit% &ei#ht 1'()" or the selection of a mussel from a catch made in order to measure the lead content" or the toss of a coin" or the rollin# of a die in a board #ame or the selection of a card from a dec* of cards. !or example" with a #roup of male students three different bo%s mi#ht have hei#hts of 1+, cm" 1'- cm and 1.'cm. A random variable has an un*nown value before the experiment and an observed numerical value after the experiment. Random variables are denoted b% a capital letter" such as X" Y and Z. /he observed values are denoted b% the correspondin# lower case letters" x" %" and 0. !or example" when a die is rolled" let the random variable" X" be the number on the face which is uppermost when the die comes to rest. /here are onl% 1 possible values for X 2 1" " 3" -" , or 1. X cannot ta*e values li*e 1.. or 3. 1'. /hus X is a discrete random variable. 4revious 5 6ext 7in*s2 ------ [1] http288alison.com89 [ ] http://alison.com/9

/he discrete probabilit% distribution of a random variable is #iven b% its possible values to#ether with their probabilities. /his distribution ma% be displa%ed as a table or a #raph or sometimes" as a formula. !irst list all the possible values" x" that X can ta*e. /hen calculate the associated probabilities" Pr(X = x). Remember that the total probabilit% ; 1. <ive the probabilit% distribution for X" the number on the face of a die that will be uppermost after it is rolled. <ive the probabilit% distribution for =N"= the number of heads obtained" when a fair coin is tossed three times. 4revious 5 6ext
