    A discrete probability is the likelihood that certain discrete data will occur. What is discrete data? Consider a scenario where you could use a discrete probability to predict the likelihood of an event. How would you determine the probability? How could you use this to support your position in a proposal?

    Discrete data is the data from a discrete variable. Another way to check whether the variable is discrete is if there are some values that could not be taken between the data intervals. For example, the number of sibling in a typical American family is a discrete variable since the number of siblings is a whole number (zero and positive integers) and any other values between two continuous integers, such as fractions, are not possible. Based on the data from discrete ...
