    What is a discrete random variable and how does it differ from a continuous random variable? Give examples.

    Random Variables:

    A random variable is a function that associates a unique numerical value with every outcome of an experiment. The value of the random variable will vary from trial to trial as the experiment is repeated.

    A random variable has either an associated probability distribution (discrete random variable) or probability density function ...

    Solution Summary

    This solution explains the discrete random variable and how does it differs from the continuous random variable. An excellent illustrative example is also provided.
