Sections: 5-2 Random Variables; Probability distribution
Introduction So far we have done descriptive statistics (e.g., summarizing data, measures of center, variation and relative standing) and notions of Probability . We will combine these ideas to study the Probability distribution .

In a probability distribution , we will associate a probability to each outcome of a procedure. A probability distribution could be given, in many situations, in the form of a table. However, we first must understand the concept of Random variable .
Random variable Random variable : is a variable (typically represented by x ) that has a single numerical value, determined by chance, for each outcome of a procedure.
